Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello I will assist.
The case you stated above, correctly states that UK jurisdiction applies.
There is further care law at employment Tribunal which showed U.K. tribunal dealings with the same employer.
Mr Paul Watkins v Condor Marine Crewing Services Ltd
That would be correct.
With a big company such as yours, it could be clarified in your contract of employment. It does not have to state which jurisdiction would apply but it may do.
Yes, Guernsey law will apply to various contract matters, however, as far as employment law is concerned, you can bring an employment case to a tribunal in the U.K. because that is where you normally live and work from. That right has been established by the European court of justice.
Hope this clarifies the position.
I would be obliged if you could Click the 5 stars at the top of the webpage (this will not cost any extra).

Clearly they have acted wrong and then attempted to correct matters.
As Employment tribunals in England do apply to this company, their actions by changing pay as stated above, could well lead to wrongful dismissal cases. This is where they have breached terms of employment.
As for Union representation, yes this is allowed and should take place.
On that subject, Guernsey even have their own rules for redundancy, and in there it clearly states at section 8.1 that in unions exist, they should be consulted and kept informed as to what is happening.

Your welcome, good luck.
