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 8 January 2018 and 14 January 2018) that our solicitors found interesting:

  1. Mr G Yildiz v British Broadcasting Corporation: 2206294/2016 and 2200913/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Respondent (the BBC) had not discriminated against the Claimant or subjected him to any detriment because he had made protected disclosures, but held that he had been constructively dismissed (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  2. Mr S George v Stage Electrics Partnership Ltd: 1400513/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Respondent had failed to carry out the necessary investigations to determine whether the Claimant would properly recover from a back injury before dismissing him (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  3. Mr Charles Christopher Barnes v Robinsons of Worcester Aggregates Ltd: 1301425/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been unfairly dismissed and discriminated against by the Respondent when he was dismissed on allegations that he had brought the Respondent into disrepute (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  4. Mr S Cambridge and others v Unipart Automotive Ltd (In Administration) and Secretary of State for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy: 1305629/2014 – the Employment Tribunal held that it was unable to make a determination as to whether the Respondents’ defence had any prospects of success as none of the parties attended and no evidence was placed before it (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  5. Mrs L Wilcox v Nationwide Diamond Contracts Ltd: 1800972/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been unfairly dismissed by the Respondent and that her contract of employment was not void due to illegality (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  6. Miss SL West v Enhance Life Ltd: 2404973/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been unfairly dismissed and discriminated against when she was dismissed for the reason of redundancy, awarding her over £6,000 (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  7. Ms S Cummings v Southern Health NHS Trust: 1400037/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Respondent had not discriminated against the Claimant or victimised her when it failed to uphold her grievance (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  8. Mrs C Oram v Gloucestershire Care Services NHS Trust: 1400991/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been unfairly and wrongfully dismissed when she was dismissed from the Respondent on allegations that she had defrauded it (Employment Tribunal judgment)

    I was very happy with the work Chris did for me. I believe with his help I secured a more favourable outcome both financially and in terms of clauses contained in the legal agreement I ultimately signed. I had utmost trust and confidence in the advice Chris provided throughout. Chris kept me informed at every stage and I found him very efficient at bringing matters to a conclusion without unnecessary delay.

    Redmans Solicitors were consistently prompt, efficient and professional from the start of my reaching out to them for support in relation to contentious negotiations of an employment matter that continued for almost two months resulting in a positive settlement agreement. Chris Hadrill was diligent, thorough, empathetic and objective in his advice and guidance, showing deep and broad knowledge of the law and legal processes plus extensive practical experience in handling complex matters, resulting in clear and pragmatic advice in ambiguous circumstances that resulted in a very good outcome. I fully recommend Chris Hadrill and Redmans Solicitors! I have made this review anonymous purely because of the confidentiality obligations in the settlement agreement concluded.

    Redmans solicitors provided legal support and advice for a settlement agreement. Excellent customer service, very professional. The senior associate solicitor kept me updated throughout the process, showed empathy and the agreement was signed-off / completed within the agreed timeline.

    I found everything about the company to be extremely professional and efficient. During my initial contact with Chris, he listened well and was reassuring, so I felt confident that my case would be well handled. Caroline was excellent at explaining all the legal points and answering my questions, as well as being very supportive and understanding throughout the process. I would definitely recommend this company.
