MISCONDUCT DISMISSALS: Steering clear of trouble

01 May 2015  

In light of the controversy surrounding Jeremy Clarkson’s sacking, Glenn Hayes explains how to ensure a dismissal for misconduct is fair

It is difficult to write about Jeremy Clarkson’s removal from Top Gear in anything approaching neutral tones. He is a man who divides the nation: his fans see him as the irreverent, controversial host of the BBC’s most lucrative export – the Top Gear trade mark and programme. In equal measure, his detractors see him as the boorish man who takes delight in offending anyone who does not share his particular passion for cars.
