Employee Blackmail - Order to Pay Employer’s Legal Costs

In a complex ‘blackmail’ type case, R v Shah the employee was ordered to pay £20,000 towards our client’s legal costs. The case has now gone to the Civil Courts for enforcement.

My firm have an excellent record when it comes to taking on ‘blackmail’ or ‘nuisance’ type claims. This case, reported in the media, is a perfect example of why employers should not ‘take the bait’. The employee put in 64 grievances and rather than fall into the obvious trap, we researched the employee's CV. It transpired he had lied about a period of time when he was involved in suspicious transactions.

His claim for unfair dismissal was dismissed due to this material misrepresentation.
