Morrish Solicitors has secured a 90-day Protective Award for TSSA members and other employees made redundant by Catalis on or before 2 July 2010.
Nottingham Employment Tribunal found that the health and safety training provider, which is now in administration, had failed to consult with employees before making them redundant from the company’s Derby centre.
Anna Power, solicitor for the TSSA members said today that the company’s failure to consult with employees was symptomatic of a worrying trend in the transport industry, which has been hard hit by the recession.
“By law, an employer who intends to make more than 20 employees redundant must consult with the employees or elected representatives on the redundancy. Unfortunately, many employers facing such cuts neglect to do so and end up leaving the taxpayer to pay awards which the employer could easily have provided,” said Power.
