    Redundancy Dismissal due to Health and Safety

    Redundancy Dismissal due to Health and Safety 1st Feb 18 at 8:10 PM

    I am representing myself at a tribunal later in the year and I was wondering if someone could help me?

    I believe I was dismissed by redundancy due to raising health and safety issues. Without getting into whether I will win my case or not does anybody know how I should be valuing my case?

    At first I believed I could only be compensated for actual losses such as the basic award etc but as this is a health and safety case could I be entitled to compensation on top of this?

    I have a feeling I have severely under valued my case?

    Any advice welcome and thank you in advance.

    I presume this figure can be quantified.

    As you named your employer earlier I went to have a look to see if the decision had been published yet but it doesn't seem to have.

    Really there's only so far that randomers on the internet can take you with something like this.

    It sounds like the judge has taken the view that if even you had not made the complaint you would have been made redundant anyway, so your dismissal from the company was ultimately fair.

    The only way I can see you getting anywhere is to argue that the judge should have found you were dismissed because of your complaint, and the fact that you would have been made redundant anyway was not relevant. TBH I'm not 100% sure where you would stand with that. And even if you did win on that basis, if the court believes you would have been made redundant anyway I think it's likely your award would be reduced.

    You need professional advice.
