In the latest of our series of posts on Employment Tribunal judgments released, we examine eight Employment Tribunal judgments released in the last week (between 1 January 2018 and 7 January 2018) that our solicitors found interesting

  1. Mr M Widdows v Hollowdown Ltd: 3300392/2017 –  in a rather unusual case, the Employment Tribunal held that a director who recruited Mr Widows did not have actual authority to do so, but had apparent authority to do so, and that there was therefore an employment relationship between Mr Widdows and his putative employer, Hollowdown Ltd. The Tribunal awarded Mr Widdows wages that he had not been paid (as he was not on Hollowdown’s payroll), damages for breach of contract, and a 25% uplift due to a failure to comply with the ACAS Code (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  2. Mr K Oppong v DHL Services Ltd: 1302640/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that Mr Oppong succeeded in part in his claims for direct race discrimination and victimisation (including allegations that he had been suspended from work because he had raised a grievance and that he had been dismissed for raising a grievance), although the Tribunal also held that Mr Oppong was not blameless and that he had been obstructive once suspended (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  3. Miss K Carter v The Chief Constable of Gloucester Constabulary and others: 1400638/2017 – the Employment Tribunal awarded Ms Carter £14,930.30 as compensation for her successful claim for indirect sex discrimination and made certain recommendations (including that the relevant police forces must implement equality training) (Employment Tribunal remedy judgment)
  4. Mr D Scanlon v Young Engineers Ltd (in liquidation): 1400746/2017 – the Employment Tribunal awarded Mr Scanlon £3,525 in respect of his claim for unlawful deduction from wages, rejecting his claim that he was owed £23,775 (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  5. Ms P George v BUPA Care Homes (CFH Care) Ltd: 3200682/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that Ms George failed in her ‘whistleblowing’ claim as, although it accepted that she had made protected disclosures, the Tribunal ruled that she had not been subjected to any detriments or dismissed because of the protected disclosures (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  6. Ms H Haines v Rainbow Theatre Productions: 1400362/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that a female actor had been sexually harassed on a number of occasions by a fellow actor in Rainbow Theatre’s touring production, and that such acts had been during the course of her employment with Rainbow Theatre (Employment Tribunal liability judgment) (Employment Tribunal remedy judgment)
  7. Mr W Dean v John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel) Ltd: 1400458/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that Mr Dean had been unfairly dismissed, after he was dismissed on allegations that he had breached confidentiality by providing a copy of his CV to recruitment agencies. The Employment Tribunal held that there had been a failure to carry out a reasonable investigation and that the company did not have a genuine and reasonable belief that Mr Dean had carried out an act of misconduct (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  8. Ms C Bickerstaff v The Royal British Legion: 1401026/2016 and 1400719/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that Ms Bickerstaff had been subjected to various detriments (including exclusion from work, being barred from attending work, and being prevented from attending the office) as a result of a protected disclosure – she therefore succeeded in her ‘whistleblowing’ claim (Employment Tribunal judgment)

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!

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.

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.
