In order to help employers through the employment law minefield, Law At Work take you through the tribunal process and offer tips for successfully defending claims. This video is a shortened version of our live employment tribunal workshops, which we hold on a regular basis across the UK – http://tinyurl.com/4ygtmyj
Scenario: Chris Bulldog is an employer’s dream – hardworking, diligent and dedicated to his job. That is, until his employer discovers his darker side. It transpires that quiet, unassuming Chris is a fully-fledged member of an extremist organisation and holds some extreme views that his employer certainly does not share. Disturbed by the revelation and fearing the worst for their reputation, Chris’ employer acts swiftly to dismiss him. But Chris is a fighter and is challenging his sacking at an employment tribunal. The case turns on a knife edge- should Chris be punished for holding private views that happen to be incompatible with those of his employer, or was his employer right to distance themselves from any association with an extreme political group?
