7 days ago
Unfair Dismissal Cases from the Employment Tribunal In this episode of the podcast I have reviewed a couple of employment tribunal decisions which have been published on the government website. It is a great way to get an understanding of what the Tribunals around the country will consider when looking at a claim for unfair dismissal. In this episode I will cover: Decision of the Tribunal in a misconduct case: Miss Helen Evans v Llanishen Fach Primary School Decision of the Tribunal in a redundancy dismissal case: Mrs JM Hockenhull v David Lewis Centre A reminder of the 'Polkey' rules when compensation is reduced where the Employer has failed to follow a fair procedure but the result would have been the same. Decision of the Tribunal in a misconduct case: Mr D Maguire v Department for Work and Pensions The surprising number of unfair dismissal cases being withdrawn or struck out as the employee did not have the required two years continuous employment. A useful tip about preparing witness evidence. A decision where the Employer was awarded some of their costs. Action Points It is a useful exercise for those who are decision makers in disciplinary cases or HR professionals to have a read of some of the Judgements available: https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions Ensure that you stay up to date with employment law developments by signing up to our free fortnightly newsletter.
