Employment Law Support (Employee)– Unfair/Constructive Dismissal/Equality Act Discrimination
Mr H, was referred to us by way of our social media platform. Mr H had been made singled out, from a workforce of over 600 and made redundant. This action had been taken by his former employer as a direct result of a high-profile media campaign against his estranged father for historical abuse claims dating from 1970’s.
We provided extensive administrative support to Mr H with a claim for unfair and constructive dismissal and discrimination under the Equality Act. The resultant claim led to a telephone hearing and a preliminary hearing at HMCTS (Her Majesty Court and Tribunal Service). Upon direction from the presiding Judge, the organisation accepted that their actions were unlawful and a financial settlement was made following the initial hearings. We continue to support Mr H with his business endeavours.
Employment Law Support (Employer) – Constructive Dismissal/Breach of TUPE
A local construction and fabrication company providing bespoke hospital refits into the NHS required a hands-on approach to the process management of a disruptive and disengaged employee. After initial mediation broke down with the management team, the employee was performance managed out of the business using a lawful process.
The resultant dismissal led to an employment tribunal which was successfully defended saving the client over £40,000 in compensation and costs. Following this successful defence our client sought advice on the best protection against a similar scenario and an insurance policy was put into place to cover future employment and health and safety implications. We have continued to support the company with business strategy and guidance.
