Manchester law firm acting for ex Donaghy workers in group employment action


The employment team at law firm JMW Solicitors LLP are currently acting for ex-employees of Glasgow based Donaghy Limited.

On 14 February KPMG were appointed as liquidators for construction firm Donaghy Limited with the loss of 175 staff; leaving just 10 staff to assist the liquidators.  Employment solicitor at JMW, Claire Deane, is acting for employees bringing claims against the company for;

1. Failure to adequately consult with its staff; and
2. Loss of earnings and outstanding holiday pay.

The firm is dealing with this case on a no win no fee basis. Frequently, there is a degree of confusion about whether an individual can claim against a former employer that has entered into liquidation. Whilst the case is at a very preliminary stage, the early indications are that each employee may well recover several thousands of pounds above any other sums already recovered from the Secretary of State.
If any other former employees wish to submit an employment tribunal claim, please contact Claire Deane by no later than 30 April via telephone on 0161 828 8342 or email

JMW are currently instructed in several other similar group actions including claims against Quadra Foods Ltd, Sitel UK Limited and Game Group.
