An employee had been marginalised and his situation became so untenable he had no option but to resign. We brought proceedings for constructive unfair dismissal and breach of contract. At the final hearing the tribunal unanimously found in his favour. Our client who had been badly criticised by his employer felt vindicated and received the maximum compensation for unfair dismissal at the time i.e. £72,300.
A shocked employee consulted us when his employment was terminated without warning or payment. We reassured him of the strength of his claim for unfair dismissal and negotiated a compensation package that provided a cushion for him while he found a new job. We resolved his situation within 5 days.
An employee was informed that his pay would be reduced by 50%. We advised him that if his employer did this, he could either resign claiming constructive unfair dismissal or remain in his job working under protest and pursue a claim for unlawful deduction of wages. Our client chose the latter course of action, raised a grievance, and we negotiated an exit for him on very favourable terms.
