ABSTRACT
The article discusses the court case Perkin versus Saint Georges Healthcare, which focused on the alleged unfair dismissal of the financial director of Saint George's Healthcare NHS (National Health Service) Trust in England. The director, who was accused of being difficult to work with, claimed that the chief executive of the trust was not a man of integrity and was unfit to hold his position. The employment tribunal which heard the claim has ruled that the dismissal was unfair, but decided not to award compensation to the director.
