Robert Lassey Successfully Represents Respondent Against Multiple Claims of Race Discrimination, Harassment & Constructive Unfair Dismissal

by Kenworthy's Chambers 18/07/2018

Robert Lassey represented a multifunctional business with over 4,000 employees operating in 250 locations across the UK in a 3-day hearing in East London Employment Tribunal; the claimant had brought multiple claims of race discrimination contrary to Section 13 and harassment contrary to Section 26 of the Equality Act (2010) and a constructive unfair dismissal against the company.

The claimant had worked for the company for 18 years, most recently as a Senior Civil Enforcement Officer (CCTV), until he officially resigned in September 2017 before claiming unfair constructive dismissal. The 3-day tribunal hearing, before Employment Judge Lewis, heard from five witnesses on behalf of the Claimant and two witnesses on behalf of the Respondent. After hearing the evidence, and reserving judgement, the Tribunal dismissed all of the Claimant's claims.
