Unexpected dependent care

In a recent case (Royal Bank of Scotland plc v Harrison) a mother had to take a day off work when she was unable to make alternative childcare arrangements. 

The mother was given a verbal warning even though she had tried all avenues to cover childcare for the day. Her appeal against the warning failed.  Even though there was a time period between the employee knowing there would be a problem and it happening it was still classed as unexpected and therefore the appeal by RBS was turned down.
