“This has been a long and extremely stressful case for Sandi and I am delighted that the Supreme Court has ruled in her favour.
“This is a significant case particularly as it provides a definitive answer to the question of when does the notice period start if an employee is dismissed on written notice posted to them as opposed to communicated to them in person.”
“The dispute is not to do with whether Sandi was made redundant unfairly, but about the timing of the communication in relation to her 12 weeks’ notice period and whether that fell before or after her 50th birthday.
“Sandi had not had the opportunity to read the letter informing her that her contract had been terminated until she returned from holiday and her husband didn’t read his email either until he was back in the UK. We are pleased the Court of Appeal has upheld the earlier judgment and ruled that the 12 weeks’ notice period should not start until she was informed and became fully aware of the situation.
“Sandi has been a loyal servant for the NHS for over 32 years and we are delighted with this outcome as it means that she will receive the pension that she deserves. It is also a significant case as it shows our commitment to represent private individuals on alternative funding arrangements against large organisations.”
