Racial Discrimination

Bell Yard advised a former senior executive at a medical device company who was suing his former employer for unfair dismissal, breach of contract and racial and sexual orientation discrimination.

Our client alleged he was dismissed from his role for raising awareness of the security flaws that bugged the medical device app and Facebook site. He began legal proceedings after his employment was terminated, filing his tribunal claim in April 2018.

Bell Yard reviewed the contents of his submissions, drafted a media briefing, and selected key media in the data security and IT fields to brief on the eve of tribunal. Throughout the hearing Bell Yard kept interested reporters abreast of evidence and of the trial progress.

On judgment, Bell Yard was ready to issue one of two pre-prepped outcome reactions, naturally amended in light of the content of the judgment, to ensure the media would be briefed of the outcome and furnished with our client’s reaction as required. The claimant succeeded in his unfair dismissal claim but lost on the discrimination aspects.
