Significant cases

Pye v Douglas Borough Council (Isle of Man Employment and Equality Tribunal, 10 March 2021): Represented Complainant at three-day hearing of a Complaint for unlawful deductions. The Complainant had received contractual sick pay under the terms of his contract for the period during which he was shielding against the Coronavirus/ COVID 19 as advised by his GP in his medical certificate. The Respondent knew that the Complainant was in Cyprus at the time of the sick note and when it agreed to pay contractual sick pay. The Respondent claimed that the Complainant was not “ready, willing and available” for work as he was in Cyprus and therefore sought to claw back these payments made under the contractual sick pay by deducting the Complainant’s wages. The Complainant was successful in establishing contractual sick pay was properly payable for this period and that his wages had therefore been unlawfully deducted. Click here for judgment.

Versluijs v Department of Home Affairs (Fire and Rescue Service) (Isle of Man Employment and Equality Tribunal, 5 March 2020): Represented Complainant at five-day hearing of a complaint for unfair dismissal on the basis of the Complainant having made protected disclosures colloquially referred to as “whistleblowing”. In addition the Complainant also claimed for pre and post dismissal detriment as a result of his whistleblowing. Unanimous decision found that the reason for the Complainant’s dismissal was the whistleblowing and not the allegations of misconduct which had been put forward by the Respondent and that the Complainant had suffered detriment.
