Dear Pie86, the emission of particles in a weak decay is a complicated reaction, and Gell-Mann's totalitarian principle applies: every process or effect that is not prohibited by a symmetry will occur at a nonzero probability. The asymmetry or the spin-momentum correlation for the electrons is such an effect.
In this case, it is infinitely unlikely that the asymmetry will be exactly zero unless the symmetry is implied by a valid symmetry. Because parity is not a valid symmetry, there's no reason for the asymmetry - the correlation between the spin and direction of the electron, among other similar correlation coefficients - to be exactly zero, so it will probably not be exactly zero.
For the particular case of the beta decay, one may calculate the corresponding probability amplitude and the asymmetry - or correlation coefficients - out of it. If the Lagrangian has the $(a+b\gamma_5)$ matrix to guarantee an asymmetry, the asymmetry of the particular decay - or the spin-momentum correlation coefficient - will be proportional to something like $ab$ or $(a^2+b^2)$ times something. More generally, it will be a function of $a,b$ that is manifestly nonzero if both $a,b$ are nonzero. And in weak interactions, they are nonzero; in fact, weak interactions are maximally parity violating so $a=\pm b$.
