TGC lawyer Kemily Ho obtained judgment for 12 months’ notice for a 45 year old manager with just under 10 years of service.
Madam Justice Beames ruled that the employee was entitled to compensation for the following items on top of his base salary for his notice period:
- a pro-rata portion of an annual bonus;
- employer contributions through a stock option plan; and
- pension contributions.
The judge rejected the former employer’s argument that the employee had failed to mitigate his losses.
