Award of €94,000 to Employee given 10 minutes to leave

Donna Frawley, who had worked in Lionbridge Technologies for over 18 years, was locked out of her computer over lunch and told to vacate her place of work within 10 minutes.

Donna was offered a ‘severance agreement’ provided she signed away her right to claim redundancy under unfair dismissal legislation but chose not to sign.  The amount offered to her was less than her statutory entitlement for redundancy and she was told that the company was not going down the redundancy route on this occasion.  Within one month of her dismissal, the Tribunal heard, her position was advertised as part of a recruitment process for a 12-month contract.

Ms. Frawley’s former employer conceded that she was unfairly dismissed.

The Employment Appeals Tribunal awarded Donna €94,000 after finding that she was dismissed without any procedure whatsoever, let alone any fair procedure. ​
