I was over the moon to receive such a thoughtful five-star review from my client following the conclusion of their whistleblowing claim. Read on to see how I was able to help…
My Client’s Story
My client was dismissed without notice for allegedly breaching health, safety and welfare standards at work. In fact, his dismissal was motivated by the fact he was a whistle-blower and had made disclosures about the unlawful behaviour of his colleagues. The case was complicated and involved reams of investigative paperwork, all of which needed to be thoroughly reviewed. The employer was adamant they were fair in their actions and simply refused to engage in early settlement discussions.
My client instructed me to lodge proceedings in the Employment Tribunal for automatic unfair dismissal by reason of being a whistle-blower. Once we teased out the technical specifics of why his dismissal was unfair (through careful view of the disclosure documents) we were able to engage in meaningful settlement discussions.
My client was able to settle his claim without need to attend a final hearing. He received a compensation package and agreed reference as part of the agreement. His five star review is set out below.
What were the circumstances that caused you to look for a legal adviser?
I was dismissed from my position at work and felt I had a strong case that it was unfair and unjustified.
How did Sophie Goodwill help you?
Sophie has helped me tirelessly from start to finish with the entirety of my legal proceedings. Sophie made sure that my claim / relevant documents were submitted on time to ensure we could continue and not make any silly mistakes. My instructions were always followed but I would often receive advice on different ways we could approach certain subjects to improve our chances of success. In times where I would be frustrated or angry at the circumstances, Sophie would keep a level head and help me refocus on the task in hand, also making sure I always fully understood the impact any of my decisions may have on my case. Sophie made sure that I had full understanding of any documents or events that we were dealing with, there was never any surprises. Finally, Sophie gave me hope during a time where everyone was trying to take it away from me. It was refreshing for someone to believe me 100%, this support helped me through some very dark times.
Have you seen the outcome you were hoping for?
Yes I believe we received the best possible outcome in a difficult situation. All credit to Sophie for understanding a technical case in a completely foreign subject.
What could they have done better?
I honestly believe there is nothing more Sophie could of done for me.
