ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the rulings on employment-related cases in Great Britain. In Forces One Utilities versus Hatfield, the Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) held that it is appropriate to strike out a response when the employer's main witness threatens the claimant at the tribunal. In Kuzel versus Roche, the Court of Appeal has considered the burden of proof in whistleblowing cases and held that it is for the employer to prove that it had a potentially fair reason for dismissing an employee.
