We recently dismissed an employee after she was off sick for two days but stated on Facebook that she was out at her friend’s drinking on the night of the first day ‘sick’.

She was at the end of an extended probationary period (extended due to many misgivings, mainly reliability and absenteeism), and was about to be given notice. However, after having been caught taking a sicky, we dismissed her on the spot. Is she entitled to pay in lieu of notice?
