What happened

Photo pending

Kate (not her real name) is an employer who had been experiencing several ongoing issues with a member of staff and decided to terminate the staff member’s employment. The employee consequently filed a claim in the employment tribunal, claiming unfair dismissal and disability discrimination.

How we helped

Our employment law team was able to assist Kate in drafting a response to the claim and provide support and guidance throughout the entire tribunal process. This included advising on correspondence received from the tribunal, assisting with completing the case management agenda and preparation of a bundle of documents for the hearing.

The outcome

The matter was resolved amicably via a negotiated settlement, without the need for either party to attend the tribunal hearing.
