Employment Team win Tribunal for Golf Club
Leathes Prior's Employment Team successfully represented Sheringham Golf Club at an Employment Tribunal this week.
Faced with high value claims for alleged disability discrimination brought by a former Club Secretary/Manager, claims always strenuously denied by the Club, Dan Chapman (Head of the Employment Team) represented the Club during the course of three days before Bury St Edmunds Tribunal. All claims were unanimously dismissed.
The litigation was complex and lasted for almost two years, and the outcome thus comes as a huge relief - not to mention vindication - for the Club. Dan commented; "We are delighted for the Club, and particularly those committee members and officials who have had to give evidence in these proceedings and give up so much of their time helping me and my team defend these claims. Without their support and endeavour, we would not have been able to deliver the successful outcome which was not only essential for the future of the Club, but absolutely just in the circumstances."
