Generally, employees with over two years’ employment benefit from significantly increased employment rights protection. However, employees with less than two years’ employment still benefit from other rights including protection from less favourable and discriminatory treatment and from detrimental treatment due to whistleblowing.
There is no upper limit on the financial awards that can be made by the Employment Tribunal in relation to either of the above claims.
If you are a senior executive with less than two years employment and you would like advice on your possible claims for whistleblowing or discrimination with a view to obtaining and negotiating a settlement agreement or with a view to bringing a tribunal claim please contact David Greenhalgh on 020 3603 2177.
