Title: I won!
Post by: guest4 on November 26, 2009, 07:54:36 PM
I won my employment tribunal yesterday against my former employers Nottingham City Council. I represented myself (cos you can't get legal aid for employment tribunals) whereas they spent a shedload of public money on a barrister plus at least one of their own legal team each day. I successfully argued that I was constructively unfairly dismissed and it's pretty rare for anybody to win that type of case.

I won mine though. They lost.

Thanks everyone. Was a joy to humiliate my old boss who the tribunal all but accused of lying.

Well done Andy, perhaps you have found a new career for yourself...defending others against the big boys :)
