Here are some examples of recent casework:
Employment Tribunal Recently our client was in need of our assistance to prove that she was eligible for certain entitlements which her employer had refused her. We managed to prove her innocence and also discover that internal management had indeed forged documents. In court, once we had proved that the documents in question had contained falsified signatures, the lay judge ruled in favour of our client. A final ruling of constructive dismissal was declared and our client was finally able to receive her correct entitlement, a compensation payment, and retained an impeccable employment history.
Employment Theft One of our clients was experiencing a higher than normal shrinkage (losses) rate than in previous accounting periods in a number of their stores. Security guards were in operation, electronic tags were placed on items, and reviews of CCTV camera had not been able to reveal the source of the losses. We managed to place a surveillance operative into the workforce at one of the retail stores. It soon became apparent that a number of individuals were involved. Someone posing as a customer would enter the store and buy a number of low value items. As these items were being bagged, further higher value items that had been de-tagged, were added to the legitimately purchased items. The bagging took place out of view of the CCTV camera’s and the “customer” then departed.. The shrinkage returned back to acceptable levels after the matter had been resolved, and the operation saved the company thousands of pounds of potential future loss .
