SMC Statement

We are pleased to announce that Mr Harrison and Mr Cook have dropped their legal claims for reinstatement back into their old roles. As stated previously, SMC were extremely confident that these claims would fail and we are pleased that they no longer wish to pursue them in the Employment Tribunal.

As a result of the reinstatement claims no longer being pursued, SMC will only be defending the substantive claims for dismissal, and the tribunal next week will focus purely on the issues of Mr Harrison and Mr Cook’s misconduct and how their conduct contributed to their dismissals.
