AM v Zeal Ltd – May 2021
AM was representing himself and seemed to be egged on by a third party for some reason. I explained to him along the way that a key part of any whistleblowing case (that he had raised concerns about failures to comply with legal obligations) didn’t have any legs…
Along the way I received an email from him and my sixth sense told me this was a good opportunity to test his resolve so I rang him and asked him politely if he would like to drop his case. To my surprise he said ‘yes’ so the case was dropped…without any payments.
The moral of most of these cases is: don’t take comfort from an employee having less than 2 years’ employment but also, there’s no point in antagonising an opponent.
