Stadnick-Borowiec v Southern Health and Social Care Trust 
Case ReferenceNICA 1
Legal BodyNI Court of Appeal (NICA)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionUnfair Dismissal, Discrimination and Equality, Whistleblowing (Protected Disclosures), Pay and Conditions of Employment
The NI Court of Appeal has ruled that a Polish GP’s claims of discrimination and unfair dismissal were “manifestly ill-founded and must fail.” It further commented that it was regrettable that the appellant had “chosen to invest so much wasted time and effort in pursuing a course which involved unfairly blaming many individuals... for her misfortunes” and hoped that she would “turn her focus inwards so as to seek to recognise and remedy the shortcomings that have made her unsuited for her employment.”
