RECENT CASES & TESTIMONIALS

UNFAIR DISMISSAL- REDUNDANCY, VICTORY AT TRIBUNAL AND REPORTED CASE

Our client was employed as a teacher and made redundant purportedly on the basis of her qualifications. She initially bought the claim herself and acted in person as she could not find a firm to assist. We took the case over, reformulated it, and won at the final hearing. We believed that many of the representations made were false and so conducted our own research and contacted parties unconnected to the proceedings for evidence to support this. The trial judge shared our view, allowed our extra evidence to be admitted, and the case has been reported on the employment tribunal website.

 

“When Amit stepped in and agreed to represent me at the Employment Tribunal I was ill, depressed, and had lost had lost both my self- esteem and confidence as a result of the treatment I was subjected to by my ex-employer. Amit had brought my case to an absolute victory on both, financial and moral grounds. Amit and his team worked incredibly hard and, when needed, almost around the clock on the faultless and strong presentation of my claim for unfair dismissal, which resulted in winning my complicated case. He approached my matters with understanding and sensitivity to my situation and came up with a feasible payment plan . Amit demonstrated great negotiating skills, while expertly strengthening my case with a mitigation statement and bundle before the remedy hearing and achieved a settlement beyond my expectations. Winning this case has given me a new lease of professional life, imbued with a wonderful feeling of justice being served. My voice has been heard. I feel very grateful to Amit and his team"

SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE. NEAR SIX-FIGURE SETTLEMENT

Our client was personally referred to us. She had been sexually assaulted at work and disbelieved about the incident by her employers who then spent significant sums of money attempting to defend the claim using more than one firm of solicitors. Despite this, we protected our client from the aggressive correspondence to ensure her terrible experience was not further exacerbated and the claim settled for a near six-figure financial sum.

“I received a very caring and personal service from Atkinson Rose.  They cared about me as a client and worked hard to achieve the very best results.” 

UNFAIR DISMISSAL FOLLOWING NEW OWNERS TAKING OVER AFTER A TUPE TRANSFER

Our client worked in a small take away shop in Leeds. She was harassed and then dismissed when new owners took over the shop and we bought a claim for an automatically unfair TUPE dismissal. The claim went to a tribunal hearing and our client was awarded a large sum of money (approximately one year’s salary) along with her tribunal fees. We also argued that it was unfair for our client to have had to pay legal costs to bring the claims and the tribunal agreed and also awarded her an award for our legal fees. Her feedback is below:

 

“Excellent. I could not have asked for anybody better to help me. I would recommend this firm. Worth every penny. Eirwen was impressive as was Amit. I can’t say thank you enough.”

LESS THAN 2 YEARS SERVICE, HARASSMENT WHILST ON WORK TRIP ABROAD

Our client was on a work trip abroad where her manager acted in a sexually inappropriate manner with her and another following the consumption of alcohol. Both employees resigned and our firm represented one whilst the other used a different firm. We bought claims for sex harassment and entered into bullish negotiations for a sum without the need for a tribunal hearing. Eventually our client settled for more than 3 times the amount that the other employee settled the claim for despite the circumstances surrounding the resignations being identical.

 

“I received a great service from Atkinson Rose LLP, I would highly recommend Amit as he was very helpful and efficient with great advice in assisting me with my case.”

DISCRIMINATION WHILST ON MATERNITY LEAVE

Our client contacted us after her employers failed to contact her whilst she was on maternity leave and then attempted to make things difficult when she attempted to return. Hostile meetings took place where salary cuts and demotions were discussed. It became clear that our client was no longer welcome back to the company because she had taken maternity leave and so she resigned. We bought claims for constructive dismissal and discrimination against the company and the individuals involved in the harassment.

" I struggled to find a firm to take my case no win no fee however Atkinson Rose took me on and successfully settled my claim. During what was a stressful and emotional time, Amit demonstrated compassion and patience and took the time to explain the procedures in a way that I understood. I am delighted with the outcome and would recommend Atkinson Rose without hesitation."
