Stefan Brochwicz-Lewinski obtains indemnity costs award in the Employment Tribunal

In unfair dismissal proceedings brought by a senior employee summarily dismissed for alleged fraudulent conduct, a Tribunal awarded the employee indemnity costs after deciding the case in her favour. Stefan said: “This was a tricky case in which the employer thought it had caught the employee red-handed – it even sent a costs warning letter before the tribunal hearing! It turned out that the employer’s case against the employee was misconceived and it was found to have acted unreasonably even in defending the proceedings.”
