Staff who were made redundant without notice when a failed Nottinghamshire engineering firm went into administration were awarded 90 days' pay following an employment tribunal. Morgan Tucker Ltd, which was based in Newark and had an office in Nottingham, called in administrators FRP Advisory on 30 May last year due to severe financial pressures. It was reported that the firm's expansion into the middle east had caused significant problems. The tribunal heard that the following day (May 31, 2017) the entire workforce of 65 people was dismissed. The staff were based across four offices - Newark, Nottingham, London and Leeds. A group of 46 of the former employees took the firm to an employment tribunal over the redundancies, where it was found the dismissals contravened Section 188 (2) of the Trade Union and Labour Relations Act 1992.

For a murder that changed a nation, it received precious little attention when it first happened. On the evening of April 22 1993, 18-year-old aspiring architect Stephen Lawrence was set upon by a pack of white, racist youths as he waited at a bus stop in Eltham, south-east London. At first it seemed the young black man might survive. He managed to break free from his attackers and run a distance of some 222 metres. But then he collapsed bleeding from two fatal stab wounds. The racism was – or should have been – obvious from the start. Before they charged at their prey, the killers had shouted: “what, what n****r?” Read more A mob steeped in violence with extensive links to underworld Among their number was David Norris, later caught by a police surveillance camera fantasising about being able to “skin a black c*** alive”.

A SERVING cop has been blasted by a judge after losing his 12th employment tribunal in ten years. Det Con Derrick Quarm, 44, was told his latest claim of racial discrimination was “totally without merit”. He asked for £25,000 in “compensation for injury to feelings” after saying colleagues buried a report he compiled on police corruption. The Met denied the allegations and called them “wild, unfounded and entirely unsupported”. Judge Julie Jones rejected the claim at a preliminary hearing in East London and ruled Quarm produced no supporting evidence. The former paratrooper joined the Met in 1997 and made his first claim against the force in 2008 after being overlooked for promotion eight times. MOST READ IN UK NEWSFEELING LUCKY?

A BBC journalist whose colleagues compared her to a Shih Tzu dog has had her appeal against an employment tribunal ruling dismissed. Sally Chidzoy, home affairs correspondent for BBC Look East, had her claim of sex discrimination against the corporation thrown out halfway through the hearing in February 2017. She had appealed against the decision, arguing her conversation with Eastern Daily Press reporter Sarah Cliss during a break in the hearing was simply "pleasantries" and the tribunal had failed to hear her version of events or properly consider how it would impact her evidence. 'Sally Shitsu' But Judge Jennifer Eady QC, sitting at the Employment Appeal Tribunal in central London, dismissed the appeal in a judgment handed down at a short hearing on Thursday. She said the original employment tribunal, sitting in Cambridge, had reached "entirely permissible conclusions" and had been fair in its decision to strike out the case. In Ms Chidzoy's original claim, it was revealed that one … [Read more...] about BBC reporter compared to a Shih Tzu dog loses tribunal appeal
