IN THE EMPLOYMENT AND DISCRIMINATION TRIBUNAL

 

 

IN THE MATTER:

 

 

BETWEEN

CATHERINE PETERS

CLAIMANT

 

AND

 

 

GERARD T WILLIAMS

RESPONDENT

 


ARTICLE 12 JUDGMENT


 

 

Before:             Mr. M Salter, Deputy Chairman

 

Reference: [2018]TRE085

                                                           

 

JUDGMENT

 

1.              No Response having been presented on the expiry of the time limit in Article 8 the Claimant’s claims are successful.

 

2.              The Respondent shall pay to the Claimant the sum of £5,760.00 for unfair dismissal and a further £218.40 for the deduction from her wages, making a total of £5,978.40.

 

 

REASONS

1.              On 29th June 2018, the Claimant presented a Claim Form with the Tribunal containing claims of unfair dismissal and breach of contract.

2.              On 2nd July 2018, the Tribunal wrote to the Respondent enclosing a copy of the Claimant’s Claim Form and advising the Respondent to complete and return the Response Form by 23rd July 2018.

3.              The Respondent did not apply for an extension of time to file the Response Form in accordance with Regulation 11 of the Employment and Discrimination Tribunal (Procedure) Order 2016 (“Procedure Order”).

4.              The Respondent failed to file a Response Form within the relevant time limit. The Tribunal therefore deems the Claimant’s claims to be uncontested.

5.              On the material I have before me, as contained in the Claim Form, a determination can properly be made of this claim and so I issue the judgement above.

6.              The Claimant’s gross weekly wage at the date of termination of employment was £480.00.

7.              She worked from July 2015 until her dismissal on 7th June 2018 and so is entitled to 12 weeks compensation for unfair dismissal. (12 x £480.00 = £5,760.00)

8.              Her final payment had a deduction of £218.40 made to it which was in breach of contract.
