Compensation for unfair dismissal


28 November 2023

Paul represented an employee sacked for speeding, in a case where a vehicle tracker had recorded evidence of over 1000 occasions in a 6-month period when the speed limit had been exceeded.

The Tribunal found that the dismissal was procedurally and substantively unfair and in breach of contract (wrongful dismissal), and awarded compensation of several thousand pounds (the employee having already secured further employment).

The client said, “…it was worth the fee to watch Paul cross-examining the person who dismissed me.”
