Project aim

I am trying to raise the funds to take my empolyer to tribunal for Bulling and Harassment in the workplace and then to get the law changed to stop it being so easy for an empolyer to just dismiss you because they have gone through the disaplinary procedure.

About the project


'End the one sided nature of employment tribunals' As the laws stands Employment Tribunals are not permitted to use their own view as to whether someone should have been dismissed or not, they are merely supposed to assess the case through what is known as the band of reasonable responses. in practice this means that although a panel at a tribunal can believe that an individual has been treated harshly. As long as the employer has followed procedure they are limited in their ability to find in the employees favour. We believe that this creates an un-level playing field whereby individuals can be summarily dismissed for minor incidents without hope of seeking redress even though they could potentially convince a Tribunal that the employers actions were severe under the circumstances. We feel that this needs to change and that Tribunals should  given the power to impose their own learned view of the case into the proceedings thus making it easier for employees who are unjustly treated.'
