Martin & Co Recover £54,000 for dismissed teacher

Martin & Co recently acted for a special needs teacher who was dismissed for allegedly force feeding a student. Evidence from the various witnesses was conflicting, however the Manchester Employment Tribunal found that no reasonable employer would have found the allegations proven, and accordingly they found that she had been unfairly dismissed. This led to a compensation payment of over £54,000. More importantly, our client was able to clear her name, which means that she can now continue with her teaching career. This was a notable success for us, particularly as our client’s insurer initially declined to pay her costs, saying that the case did not have reasonable prospects. We, however, convinced them otherwise, which meant that they then agreed to pay our costs.
