Dismissal upheld after contract leak

By December 1, 2015Uncategorized

A manager who complained he was unfairly dismissed has lost his legal claim. Andrew Collins, who worked for transport company Cabline, denied revealing confidential information about a £3 million contract to a potential competitor. He then made a claim for unfair dismissal, unfair deduction of wages and holiday pay last year.

Cabline claimed that Collins had breached its trust by sharing details of the potential business over a lunch meeting, but he argued that he knew nothing of the negotiations and that some details were already public. His claim for unfair dismissal was rejected, and the judge described his other claims as poorly founded, so they too were dismissed.
