Substantive Fairness in Disciplinary Dismissals

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses and focuses on the standard of substantive fault. The discussions in this chapter seek the best interpretation of the substantive fairness standard in relation to disciplinary dismissals. The interpretation that is presented in this chapter tries to abstract the principles on which the courts and tribunals act, and then seeks to fit these principles into a coherent moral and political vision of justice in dismissal.

Keywords: standard of substantive fault; substantive fairness; disciplinary dismissals; courts; tribunals
