Obafemi Awolowo University, ile-ife, Nigeria.
The main aim of this paper is to review the Nigerian cases on the right of an employer to discipline his employee for an act of misconduct amounting to a crime with a view to reconciling the seeming inconsistency of the recent decision of the Supreme Court with the well established principle on this important aspect of labour law. The aim is not to review disciplinary procedure generally but to consider the vexed question of whether or not an employee who has committed an act of misconduct which amounts to a crime must first be tried in a court of law before his employer can punish him by dismissal.
