Employment Tribunal Win for Northern Ireland Ex City Link Employees

Employment lawyers at full service law firm JMW Solicitors LLP have successful won an Industrial Tribunal claim for ex City Link employees from Northern Ireland for City Link Ltd’s failure to properly consult.

Led by employment Partner Carl Moran, the team at JMW have worked hard on behalf of the ex-City Link employees who worked at the Belfast depot to gain compensation after the firm went into administration on Christmas Eve with the closure of 51 depots and the loss of over 2,500 jobs nationwide. A Tribunal ruled that City Link failed to properly consult with its employees based at the Belfast depot on their redundancy so they are automatically entitled to 90 days’ pay (capped at 8 weeks’ pay due to damages being paid by the Department of Education and Learning).

JMW lodged the claim on behalf of 10 ex-employees from the Belfast depot and now they have been successful any other ex-employees of this depot can come forward and make a claim for the same amount of damages.

Commenting on the claim, Carl Moran, Partner in the Employment Law at JMW said:

“We are delighted to have won the judgement in Northern Ireland for City Link’s failure to consult properly over the redundancy of the employees at the Belfast depot. We are now urging any other ex-employees from this depot to contact us as they are also entitled to apply for the same amount of damages.”

JMW would like any former City Link employees from the Northern Ireland depot to contact a member of the JMW Employment Team if they believe they may benefit from joining the Action.
