Case Review: Aggrieved Staffordshire worker wins £6,835 tribunal payout

Sally Massey, a management accountant for an electrical firm in Staffordshire, won her unfair dismissal claim against her former employer. She claimed she was the only employee not to be offered new employment by a new company on the same site, when the former firm had shut down.

An employment tribunal heard that the electrical firm closed its’ doors after 19 years after going into creditors’ voluntary liquidation, the result of serious financial problems.

Mrs Massey claimed that another company had moved onto the same premises, and that many employees of the former firm had been found jobs with the new company – except her.

She told the employment tribunal, “The others were given jobs with the new firm so I was the only one to lose out.”

The employment tribunal was told that the company had failed to carry out the proper process in dismissing Mrs Massey and that as a result she had not been paid redundancy money or holiday pay.

The firm did not attend the hearing and Mrs Massey said she was now actively looking for another job.

Mrs Massey’s £6,835 award includes redundancy pay.
