Charlotte Davies successful after a 4 day employment tribunal

24th September 2015

James v Cornwall County Council

 

Judgment has been handed down in the above matter with the Claimant, represented by Charlotte Davies, being successful in her claim for post-termination victimisation under s.27 Equality Act 2010.

 

C had previously worked as a social worker with the Respondent but after handing in her notice she brought a claim for discrimination and constructive dismissal. In response, C's manager referred C to the HCPC - the social workers' regulatory body. The Tribunal, chaired by Employment Judge Carstairs, found that it was not satisfied with the manager's explanation as to the reasons for the referral and Charlotte successfully argued that the referral was done because C had done a protected act.

 

Compensation will be assessed at a further hearing.
