A Luas driver who was found to be over the alcohol limit at a depot will have his job reinstated, following a ruling by The Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).

Dublin Live reports that the WRC found that the investigation and disciplinary process carried out by the unnamed man's employer was so flawed and unfair, that it was prejudiced and ''breaching principles of natural justice''.

It is understood that the worker was present at the Red Cow depot to collect personal items, and was not there to drive a tram.

He failed a series of alcohol tests and was later fired by the company.

At the hearing of this case, the worker mentioned that he'd worked with Luas for 13 years, enjoyed a good reputation and had a positive working relationship with staff and management.
