Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
For Ben Jones
Hi, thank you for your response. I have attached 3 letters that my brother's ex-employers have sent to him. The latest one is in reply to his stating that he feels that he has been unfairly dismissed because of his condition, and they have consequently done an about turn on their reason for his dismissal.
My question is, do you think that their current argument and manipulation of the facts as written (but also discussed at length on the phone) would carry any weight at a tribunal, as it seems to me that they are panicking, handling it in a heavy handed manner and causing him further anxiety. Surely if his performance was so bad, although I assume, they were not obliged to give him a formal verbal/written warning as less than 2 years' employment, there would have been specific reference to this as the reason in his initial letters? Also, are they able to insist about evidence of his medical records prior to issuing proceedings, as per the last paragraph?
Thank you for your excellent reply, but I cannot see where to rate your answer on this occasion? There doesn't seem to be the rating tab that has been there in the past?
