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)

    Chris Hadrill is hugely impressive - the right blend of assured calm and savvy professionalism. I've already recommended him to friends and family.

    I was hugely impressed with the ease of being able to work with Redmans Solicitors and their professional approach. Mel was really clear around the process, and costings required and I felt comfortable throughout. I would certainly recommend.

    I was made a settlement offer by my employer to terminate my emplyment early. Redmans helped me understand the offer, and ensured that it was fair for someone in my position. They made a very stressful situation much easier. Excellent service.

    Overall I am satisfied with the performance from Redmans. The reason I have given 4 stars is that I had quite a lot difficulty in contacting the representative which was initially nominated for me. However, when I contacted Chris instead, he was excellent over the phone and secured a great outcome in short order. I would recommend Redmans Solicitors.

    Chris and Redmans were a great help. Effective and efficient, quick response from my first enquiry and then straightforward and attentive throughout with ultimately a positive outcome. I will use them again and recommend them.

    I don’t normally write reviews, but thought it was time on this occasion. Just wanted to say that I highly recommend Redmans - especially Rana Tandon, who helped me navigate around my employment contract. Rana was meticulous and thorough and all over my needs. Would I use Redmans again ? ..absolutely

    Very thorough and professional service. I was very nervous about my employment case, as I had never dealt with anything like it before. However, the solicitors who handled my case made sure I understood everything. I was never kept in the dark and Redmans kept me constantly informed about what was going on with my case. I would definitely recommend Redmans Solicitors

    Chris and Sacha were great throughout the entire process. Chris was very helpful once the initial discussions with my company began and before we agreed there was a case. Sacha was very responsive, patient and helpful throughout ensuring I felt I had the right information to make the best decision on next steps. A close friend and wife have both used Redmans in the past few years for unfair dismissals and the service continues to be first-class and I would strongly recommend them again. They definitely help reduce the anxiety that comes with uncertainty around new processes and situations. Thank you!

    Good service, but they could have been quicker in their responses to me. I also felt they could have made it clear at one crucial point that what I was proposing - and what I ultimately ended up doing - was counterproductive. (Had they made the rules around TOIL payments clear to me, this wouldn't have happened). Also, the amount I ended up paying was considerably higher than their original estimate. Still, satisfied with the service I received.
