An NHS worker whose employers tried to make her redundant while she was abroad on holiday has won her case at the Supreme Court.
Before her trip to Egypt in April 2011, Sandi Haywood asked Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust that no decision be taken on her possible redundancy during her two-week absence.
Alex Bearman appears in the Mirror explaining "The key issue in this case was whether you can be dismissed while on holiday."
Can you be sacked while on holiday? is available to read on the Mirror website.
