Tribunal makes costs award against former employee of £432,000

The employment tribunal has awarded an employer £432,000 in costs, which is thought to be the largest costs award made by the tribunal to date. A former employee had unsuccessfully brought claims of unfair dismissal, age discrimination, race discrimination, sex discrimination, victimisation, harassment, whistleblowing detriment and unfair deduction from wages following a redundancy process. The size of the award follows a judgment finding that the employee had been “duplicitous” and had undermined the trust and confidence between himself and his employer.
