Wrongful dismissal case delayed

Having waited for over a year to have his wrongful dismissal case resume before the Employment Rights Tribunal, former temporary field officer at the Rural Development Commission (RDC) Leo Graham has been told he will have to wait some more.

When Barbados TODAY turned up Monday at the Conference Room of the Labour Department to cover the hearing, Secretary to the Employment Rights Tribunal Lydia Collins said the case had been adjourned at the request of one of the parties. It was not immediately clear who requested the adjournment.

The last hearing of Graham’s case was on August 10, 2015 before Chairman, attorney-at-law Omari Drakes.

    This matter is before the Employment Rights Tribunal and therefore cannot be a “wrongful dismissal case”. Note to the author- This is a case of unfair dismissal…It is clear that you do not appreciate the distinction.
