The Civil Service Appeal Board has issued a report which said that government departments are unlawfully sacking one in four civil servants costing the taxpayer £628,632. The report showed that standard dismissal procedures were not being followed.
This mirrors this firm’s experience of dismissals in the public sector in the last twelve months. We have acted for employees who have been unfairly dismissed without the procedure being followed from all walks of the public sector. Unfair procedures in redundancy, no dismissal procedure in others. Of course this is not unique to the public sector but perhaps we should expect a bit more for our money?
