Every month we aim to bring you the most absurd sacking that has made a splash in tabloid journalism. This month a waiter for one of London’s most exclusive restaurants, part of the five star Melia ME Hotel has been dismissed for gross misconduct after a leaflet with information about fair tipping and the right to join a union was found in his locker.

The restaurant in question was recently found to have used tips as a means of topping up managers’ salaries and the incident follows a recent pledge by business secretary Sajid Javid to end unfair tipping practises.
