Thorneycroft Solicitors have recently assisted a well known local football personality in his claim for unfair dismissal.
In a decision running to some 34 pages, which was handed down on 24th April 2017, the Employment Tribunal in Manchester has held that Efe Sodje was unfairly dismissed when his employment was terminated by Macclesfield Town on 14th March 2016.
The Tribunal also found that Mr Sodje was wrongfully dismissed in breach of contract. The Tribunal went on to direct that the Club should pay Mr Sodje compensation for unfair dismissal and damages for breach of contract.
It has invited the parties to try and reach an agreement on the sums to be paid failing which there will be a further hearing to determine the amount to be paid.
The Tribunal’s judgement can be inspected on the public register which can be accessed at www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions (Mr E P Sodje -v- Macclesfield Town Football Club Limited; 2401718/2016).
Mark Bestley of Thorneycroft Solicitors in Macclesfield represented Efe Sodje throughout the case and acted as his advocate at the 3 day hearing.
He said “we are obviously delighted with the Tribunal’s decision and especially for Efe. This was a long drawn out dispute and Efe’s determination to prove he had been unfairly treated has been fully vindicated”.
