Unfair dismissal – The importance of process…

By September 13, 2021Uncategorized

Despite:

  • not responding to clients in a timely fashion
  • rarely hitting targets
  • regularly “going missing”
  • not handing in expenses on time (which amounted to ~£60,000 for claims dating back 5 years!)
  • turning up for meetings late

Mr Porchetti won his claim for unfair dismissal.

In Mr P Porchetti v Brush Electrical Machines Ltd although a judge agreed that Mr Porchetti had contributed to his own dismissal, the claimant prevailed.  The Respondent accepts it did not follow a procedure when dismissing the Claimant and so the Claimant’s dismissal was procedurally unfair.

Procedure is everything.  Please remember that no matter how frustrating a situation is, we are here to help and make sure that you do not fall short of procedure which could place the business in the wrong.
