Six-figure settlement achieved by Employment Team in race discrimination claim

Uzair Zafar, Solicitor, and Lauren McLaughlin, Partner, assisted and advised the Claimant in Employment Tribunal proceedings involving race discrimination, victimisation, harassment and unfair constructive dismissal complaints, ultimately securing an outstanding six-figure settlement for their client.

The Claimant, a former senior employee at an international and well-known company, is now able to move forward without the stress of ongoing protracted litigation, with the lengthy final hearing which had been listed to commence in many months’ time being vacated. The settlement sum tots up to over a year’s pay for the Claimant and more than the statutory cap on compensation for claims of unfair dismissal.

The Claimant commented: “I know I’ve said it a million times but I’m extremely pleased with having had you to support me through this process. You balanced professionalism with compassion in the best possible way and always made me feel that your thinking behind how to maintain a strong position for me was top notch.”
