Claimants should take heed of the decision reached in the EAT case of Mrs Growcott v Glaze Auto Parts Ltd.  Glaze Auto successfully defended Mrs Growcott’s unfair dismissal claim and then obtained an order that she should pay their costs from the date of an email sent to the employee by the employer’s solicitors warning her of the issues in the unfair dismissal proceedings and the legal principles and warning that if she persisted they would apply for costs.  The EAT upheld this decision and said that the Tribunal were entitled to find that the employee had acted unreasonably in continuing with her claim after the email.
