Unfair dismissal


Nightclub employee wins Tribunal claim

Taylor&Emmet represented a client against a Sheffield night club in an Unfair Dismissal claim.  After a two day hearing, with the benefit of our representation, our client was successful in his claim and received a large amount of compensation.


Employee succeeds in reinstatement battle

Taylor&Emmet obtained an Order from the Tribunal that an employee had been unfairly dismissed and that she should be reinstated by her employer and paid a substantial compensation payment.


Employee unfairly dismissal after 20 years’ service

Taylor&Emmet represented an employee who was made redundant because of a disability after over 20 years’ service with her employer. We represented the client at a Tribunal hearing where we were successful in getting a Judgment not only of unfair dismissal but also of discrimination relating to her disability and failure to make reasonable adjustments because her employer relied on disability related absence when they took the decision to make her redundant.


Success for employee who was dismissed after a TUPE transfer

An employee succeeded in getting a decision of unfair dismissal after he was dismissed ahead of a TUPE transfer. The Tribunal agreed with the arguments presented by Taylor&Emmet that the dismissal had been related to the transfer and was therefore automatically unfair.


Managing Director wins legal fight over unfair dismissal

A Managing Director received significant compensation after instructing Taylor&Emmet to represent him in his legal fight after alleging unfair and wrongful dismissal against his former employer. After a complicated legal battle our client’s former employer agreed to pay significant compensation under a compromise agreement.


Discrimination law

Discrimination law


Doctor receives positive settlement after race discrimination claim

Taylor&Emmet represented a doctor who alleged that she was discriminated against and victimised because of her race.  We conducted an Employment Tribunal claim for her and succeeded in getting a high value settlement at a mediation meeting, without the need to go to a Tribunal Hearing.


Employee successful in disability discrimination claim against her former employer

Taylor&Emmet represented an employee who was made redundant because of a disability after over 20 years’ service with her employer. We represented her at a Tribunal hearing where we were successful in getting a Judgment not only of unfair dismissal but also of discrimination relating to her disability and failure to make reasonable adjustments because her employer relied on disability related absence when they took the decision to make her redundant.


Claim of harassment and discrimination succeeds with the benefit of advice from Taylor&Emmet

Taylor&Emmet pursued a claim in the Employment Tribunal on behalf of a client who was harassed on the grounds of sexual orientation. Despite being heterosexual he was subjected to homophobic bullying and the Tribunal agreed that not only had he been unfairly dismissed but that he had also been the victim of work place bullying and harassment on the grounds of sexual orientation.


Compromise agreements:

Compromise agreements


We acted for a client who had been offered a Compromise Agreement by her employer.  We were able to negotiate to more than double the compensation payment the employer was initially prepared to pay and we obtained confirmation from HMRC that the six figure payment could be made tax free.
