  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)

  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. Mr L Purdey v Spelthorne Borough Council ET/3322474/2016 – the Employment Tribunal granted an application for costs (to the sum of £1,900) against an unsuccessful Claimant after the value of the settlement offers that were made to him prior to the full merits hearing exceeded the value of what he could reasonably have been awarded (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  6. Ms A Gibbins v British Council ET/2200088/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that an employee, who had been dismissed after making comments on Facebook that Prince George was the ‘face of white privilege’, had not been unfairly dismissed or discriminated against (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  7.

  8. 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)

    Redmans did a brilliant job regarding my redundancy agreement. I miss read an extra charge which wasnt the case so doing a new review to clarify. I would recommend Redmans for any employment law issues you may have.
