In the latest of our series of posts on Employment Tribunal judgments released, we examine ten Employment Tribunal judgments released in the last week (between 30 October 2017 and 5 November 2017) that our solicitors found interesting

  1. Ms C v The Governing Bod of Warren School & Suffolk County Council ET/3401301/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that the requirement that a female teacher who had been sexually assaulted by a pupil continue to work in the same school constituted indirect discrimination, and awarded her £52,493 (Employment Tribunal judgment, our analysis)
  2. Mrs A Fletcher v Countrywide Estate Agents ET/3400899/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that a disorganised restructure of an office, which caused an employee significant extra work and stress, had constructively dismissed the employee (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  3. Ms P Sedze v Bulb Interiors Ltd ET/3347066/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that a female employee being made redundant whilst she was on maternity was not because of her period of maternity leave (or childcare commitments) but because the employer had decided to no longer pursue telesales (her responsibility (Employment Tribunal judgment)

  5.

Miss Gooding v The Felixstowe Dock and Railway Company Limited ET/3401365/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that the redundancy of a female employee’s job whilst she was on maternity leave constituted discrimination, and that the female employee was constructively dismissed when she resigned as a result (Employment Tribunal judgment)

I am very lucky that I worked with Mr. Chris Hadrill and he managed my case very progressively with an analytical approach and trustfully. Of course with a very positive result. I strongly recommend Mr. Hadrill to any one seeking for a successful result from a highly qualified solicitor.

Amazing, quick friendly service from Chris from the start and Caroline. They made me feel at ease during a difficult time, they understood and advised accordingly and I am really happy with the outcome of my case. Will always advise anyone who needs legal advice to contact Redmans, I’m so glad that I did and can confidently say I don’t think any other firm could have handled my case any better. Well done guys, wish you all the best and please keep doing what your doing, simply the best!

I had a very good experience working with Chris Hadrill during a difficult and emotional time. This held true from the moment I spoke to him on the phone, to the end of the process. Overall, he was attentive, professional and highly supportive. He provided sound advice and clarity. It was the reviews that led me to Redmans! I was very happy to know they were all true. I highly recommend working with Redmans Solicitors. Thank-you to the entire team!

Very prompt response and I could not fault the service. My solicitor listened carefully to the details of my case and I felt very confident in the advice I was offered. All emails and work done on my behalf with my former employer was of the highest standard and Redmans helped take a lot of the stress out of the situation for me.
