Tribunal rules in employee’s favour


In its first ever decision the Employment Rights Tribunal today ruled that former KPMG employee Joel Leacock was unfairly dismissed, but should not be rehired by the company.




The three-member panel led by Chairman Hal Gollop, QC, ordered that Leacock, who was fired on September 20, 2013, must be awarded total compensation of $77,176.92.

Delivering the 19-page ruling, which lasted just over an hour, Gollop said the employment rights body found that the company did not follow the procedures of dismissal and discipline laid out in the Employment Rights Act, part A of the fourth schedule.
