Please can you tell me what the judgement was for?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
For unfair dismissal under the Employment Tribunal Rules of Procedure 2013.a A basic award of £8,545.20 and compensatory award of £734.34. It was heard at the county court without us being present. An administration error on my part meant that a court date was set for May but as I did not challenge at the time it was heard without us being able to give evidence.

I am the employer not the employee. The employee was TUPED to us under an old contract with 12 years service with enhanced redundancy payment due, equivalent to the basic award made. The employee was relocated, claimed the new premises was unsuitable. Her requests were met but the employee left without reviewing the changes and adaptations made by the company, hence her constructive dismissal claim.

Hi there, you do have the right to appeal but whether you are able to do so depends on if you are still within the time limits to do so and also your grounds for appeal. First of all I just wanted to make sure that the claim was heard in the county court rather than the employment tribunal? It is unusual for such claims to be heard in the county court so need to be clear that this was definitely the venue that dealt with this claim? I can then discuss the options for making an appeal. Thanks
