In my last blog post, I considered the cases of Royal Mail Ltd v Jhuti  EWCA Civ 1632 and International Petroleum Ltd v Osipov  UKEAT/0058/17 and the difficulties faced by both claimants and respondents in ‘tainted information’, or ‘Iago’, cases, where employers are manipulated into dismissing employees by their co-workers .
In this blog post I look at possible approaches for parties to take when bringing or defending such a claim. The right approach will vary depending on the particular employer and factual scenario. However, the following are matters that should at least be considered by advisors in such cases, even if the sensible advice in some cases will be to reject them. For employers, some steps will have to be considered before any claim arises.
