GM drank at work

An  hotel General Manager (GM) inadvertently double-booked a wedding with a golf tour as he was drinking with the bride’s father when the booking was made.
That was one of the disputed allegations made against the GM in the case where a Co Monaghan hotel owner hired a private investigator to determine the scale of the GM’s drinking during work hours and the hotel sacked the GM in July 2017 on foot of the investigator's report.
 The GM sued for unfair dismissal and the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) has upheld his claim after finding that the hotel’s procedures in sacking him were flawed.
 The WRC assessed the GM’s loss to be €50,000 but has awarded him the reduced amount of €15,000 after finding that his contribution to his dismissal was 70pc.
 WRC Adjudication Officer, Emile Daly also found that on the balance of probabilities, the GM drank alcohol while on duty. She said: “This was inappropriate conduct and one that no hotel management could have tolerated.”
Ms Daly said that she was not persuaded by the GM’s own evidence that he did not drink alcohol while working.
