Home / News and Insights / Press / Employer who ‘slammed hands on the table’ and shouted at solicitor for finding a new job unfairly dismissed her, tribunal rules

A solicitor has been unfairly dismissed after being told she had to leave immediately and being shouted at for handing in her notice and informing her employer that she had a new job offer.

Writing in an article for People Management magazine, legal director Laura Binnie states:

‘This judgment is a stark reminder that employers need to act reasonably and proportionately during the full course of an employment relationship; this extends to dealing with resignations, and their aftermath, in a fair manner.

‘Employers should not assume that an employee intending to leave their employment removes the risk of claims and they should be especially careful in how they treat such terminations of employment – the meaning and language around a dismissal is very different to the acceptance of a resignation and can certainly increase the risk of claims, even more so when, as here, there was also found to be a difference in treatment between British nationals and internationally sponsored migrants.’
