Case Study 1 - capability dismissal
Our client had been dismissed from his role by reason of incapability. We issued proceedings and progressed the matter to the final hearing. Although our client's former employer had a reasonably strong defence to the claim in that they had followed a reasonable procedure and formed a reasonable belief, we managed to negotiate with their solicitors and achieved a five-figure settlement.
Case Study 2 - unfair selection for redundancy
Our client had been made redundant in circumstances in which he believed he had been selected for personal reasons. We brought proceedings on his behalf and successfully argued with his employer's solicitor that the evidence could be viewed in his favour. Not long before the hearing was due to take place, the respondent accepted our client's offer of five figures.
Case Study 3 - pregnancy-related discrimination/dismissal
Our client started work with a new employer and shortly afterwards discovered she was pregnant. After she notified her new employer that she was pregnant their attitude, which had previously been friendly and supportive, changed. She was side lined, given menial tasks to do and denied training opportunities. After 2 months or so our client resigned from her post and claimed constructive unfair dismissal and sex discrimination. Proceedings were issued in the Employment Tribunal on our client's behalf. The case settled for an agreed sum prior to the hearing.
Case Study 4 - misconduct dismissal
Our client was dismissed from work following conviction for an incident unrelated to work. However, another employee in similar circumstances had not been dismissed. We were able to achieve an out-of-Court settlement for our client due to the employer's inconsistency in treatment between himself and another employee.
