Our Client who was headhunted for her new position suffered close personal bereavements and also suffered a miscarriage which resulted in her taking time off.
Her male line manager summonsed her to a meeting which she thought was a return to work meting only to be told that she was being dismissed for purported to our Client’s purported behaviour which had only just come to light.
Our Client instructed us through her Household insurance and Tribunal proceedings were issued. The employer agreed a settlement for a six figure sum within only a few months of proceedings being issued.
