850 Claims Struck Out

Ed Morgan recently represented a major national company in resisting the reinstatement of 850 claims in the Newcastle Employment Tribunal. Following non-compliance with case management orders, the Tribunal struck out the 850 claims which related to enhanced redundancy and notice pay, following the closure of the client’s centre in Tyneside. Representing the Respondent at the PHR, Ed persuaded the Tribunal the interests of justice could not be satisfied on the facts of the case and secured an order for costs against the Claimants.
