Dignity At Work – Legal Issues (1)

Unfair Dismissal claims

Gab Robbins (UK) Ltd v Triggs

  • T bullied by manager (B) and over-worked and raised grievance
  • Co. ignored over-work, suggested meeting with B
  • T resigned
  • Decision acts complained of amounted to a cumulative breach; failure to investigate grievance was final straw

Royal Bank of Scotland plc v McAdie

  • M complained of bullying, went off work with stress
  • Off work for >1 year, said she was unable to return
  • RBS dismissed her
  • Decision fact that RBS caused the ill-health meant it had to ‘go the extra mile’ before dismissal
