Miss Lyndsay’s case was successful thanks to the help of Michael Lewin’s industrial tribunal solicitors in making her claim.
Miss Lyndsay had worked in a fashion boutique for 5 years. She had studied design at college and was drawn to the unique clothes style that the boutique offered when she saw the job advertisement in the window. The boutique was a small chain of 5 shops all in nearby towns. Miss Lyndsay had a great eye for fashion and often assisted the owner on buying trips for vintage and unique clothes.
One day out of the blue Miss Lyndsay was told to get out of the shop and never step foot on the premises again of the police would be called. When she asked why she discovered that the owner thought she had been stealing cash from the till. She had no choice but to leave.
?I have never stolen anything in my life and I spent weeks being upset over this accusation. I then ran into a friend of mine from one of the other boutiques and she told me that the manageress of the store I had worked in had been arrested for fiddling with the books for that store. The manageress had been sneaking money out and the one time it was noticed I had been accused. I decided to find help from one of Michael Lewin’s industrial tribunal solicitors to claim for the stress that the whole situation had caused me.?
Miss Lyndsay received compensation and an apology following her unfair dismissal. Miss Lyndsay is just glad that her name has been cleared and she can start again without this situation hanging over her head.
