Specialist employment help for woman made redundant despite TUPE transfer

Woman looking out window

Digby Brown's specialist employment lawyers helped a woman who found herself made redundant from her role with a security firm in the north of Scotland.

This was despite transferring to her employer under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) regulations only months earlier.

After redundancy at work, company recruits others to carry out role

Following her dismissal at work, the company continued to recruit and employ others to carry out her former duties.

However, the reason given for her redundancy was that her role was no longer required.

This demonstrated that the employer was not accurate in reason for dismissal and that she had been denied the opportunity to apply and be assessed to continue in her role, which she had held for a number of years.

Employment tribunal for compensation

A settlement of £1,500 was achieved before a formal Employment Tribunal commenced, with Digby Brown's employment lawyers engaging fully with ACAS, the mediation service, on our client’s behalf.
