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)

  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.

  7.

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 have been very pleased with the support I got from Redmans Solicitors on my case with my employer. Caroline has always helped me to put things in perspective and showed me different scenarios ultimately to help me taking the right decision. She was very professional and always available when I needed, and at the same time also emphatic which I found also really important to establish a strong relationship. Will definitely recommend!

    I had Mel Chin helping me with a settlement and she was very professional and reliable throughout my case. Mel provided me with a good understanding of what was happening and gave suggestions on routes I could take. My case was resolved and closed promptly although the opposing side were very difficult to deal with. A very big thank you to Mel and Chris.

    My first ever experience needing the services of a solicitor; cannot speak highly enough of Mel and Chris’s personable, reassuring and straight to the point advice in dealing with my settlement agreement. They put me at ease during an extremely stressful time. I am equally as happy with the outcome, as l am their professional services.
