An Employee v The Christie NHS Foundation Posted In: Case Law
Case ReferenceEWHC 3363
Legal BodyEngland and Wales High Court (EWHC)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionHealth and Safety
This case should be used as a case study on why mediation is generally the best way forward to deal with the fall-out over reorganisation or claims of bullying in the workplace.
The claimant was Associate Director of Human Resources and Organisational Development of the Trust and effectively head of HR. She reported to the deputy CEO but was not a board member.

To say that the claimant and the consultant did not get on is an understatement. They were very different characters, with different experiences of HR at different levels.
