MoJGus Poyet has reportedly settled his claims for unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal and accrued but unpaid wages against Brighton Football Club.

Mr Poyet was dismissed from his role as manager of Brighton Football Club in June 2013 after an unspecified disagreement with the board of Brighton Football Club. He subsequently commenced proceedings for unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal and accrued but unpaid wages in the Employment Tribunal. However, it has now transpired that Mr Poyet, who took up the role of manager at struggling Sunderland last month, has now settled his Employment Tribunal claims against Brighton, having decided to “draw a line” under the claims. It was reported that no compensation changed hands under the settlement (which would either have been in the form of a COT3 agreement or a settlement agreement) but that Mr Poyet agreed to withdraw his claims on a “drop hands” basis (i.e. that neither side would be responsible for the other’s costs).

Poyet’s legal representative released the following statement after the withdrawal of the claim: “In relation to Mr Gus Poyet’s departure from Brighton Football Club, both Mr Gus Poyet and Brighton Football Club have now reached a settlement whereby Mr Gus Poyet has withdrawn his employment tribunal claim. Mr Gus Poyet would like to take this opportunity to express his sincere thanks to Brighton Football Club and in particular the fans for the tremendous support received during his time as manager at Brighton Football Club. Mr Gus Poyet wishes both Brighton Football Club and the fans well for the future.”

There does not appear to have been any comment as yet from Brighton Football Club.

Chris Hadrill, an employment solicitor at Redmans, commented on the case: “It is quite common for claims to be withdrawn on a ‘drop-hands’ basis if the Claimant no longer believes that the claim has prospects of success or decides to withdraw the claim for another reason. A line has now, as Mr Poyet wished, been drawn under this matter.”

I was very grateful for Redmans to treat my case with respect and discretion. At the time, I was very new to London and it was meaningful to have someone on my side and win the case for me. Without any doubt, I would definitely recommend Redmans Solicitors to anyone who is in need of it.

Excellent service. It was a pleasure to work with Chris H, who is brilliant at what he does and very efficient. Their Senior Associate Rana T. is also very knowledgeable and resolves any queries speedily and efficiently. My issue could unfortunately not be resolved, but that was due to my employer and not the firm. Redmans however did all they could. I would definitely recommend them.

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!

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.
