Was Citibank right to sack employee over dodgy expenses food claim?

I think it wasn't proportionate for this minor offence, should have just disciplined the staff member instead and hence should have lost that tribunal.

Let's have your views and please vote in the poll.

Citibank has won an employment tribunal after sacking a worker for claiming expenses for sandwiches and coffee for his partner, and then lying about it.

Szabolcs Fekete had accused the bank of unfair dismissal after he was fired last year for gross misconduct.

Mr Fekete had initially claimed that he alone had consumed two sandwiches, two coffees and two pasta dishes during a business trip to Amsterdam.

But he later admitted that his partner had shared some meals.
