  5. Reading Rabbi wins settlement after being sacked from synagogue – The woes of a dwindling Jewish synagogue which had to sack its rabbi because the treasurer claimed they could not afford him were laid bare in an employment tribunal. Rabbi Zvi Solomons claimed unfair dismissal when he sued the congregation after discovering that the finances of the group were in fact much more healthy than had been predicted (Get Reading)

    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.
