Robert Lassey Represents Multi-National Company at Remedy Hearing

by Kenworthy's Chambers 13/08/2018

Robert Lassey represented a multi-national company at a remedy hearing in Bristol Employment Tribunal, after a Rule 21 Judgement had been entered against the Respondent, following their failure to file an ET3 in response to claims of Race Discrimination.

Robert was successful in arguing that the Claimant would have been dismissed on the same date, regardless of any discriminatory treatment on the part of the Respondent, thereby reducing her losses to £0, and that the Claimant had not demonstrated any injury to feelings above the minimum level.

Accordingly, and in line with Robert's argument, the Tribunal awarded the Claimant a "de minimis" award at the lowest level possible.
