Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How long had she worked there for and when did she leave? Also, what is your specific question in relation to this please?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. I cannot comment on the strengths of her case, be it the strengths of her taking it further or yours for defending it. That is because you need to have a formal case analysis conducted to get that, which we cannot do online as we are just a chat service.
However, if you believe that she has no claim to bring forward you can highlight the deficiencies of this to the Employment Tribunal and ask them to strike the claim out for having no reasonable prospects of success. If that does not happen, you should seek to issue a costs warning, where you basically warn the claimant that due to the claim not having reasonable prospects of success, if she was to continue with it and then lose, she would be liable for your costs going forward (something which would not ordinarily happen as each side pays their own costs in the Employment Tribunal). Hopefully this will eventually put her off from proceeding further.
Does this answer your query?
All the best
