Caspar Glyn QC acts successfully for fire service in false claim of harassment and unfair dismissal case

Caspar Glyn QC acted successfully for South Wales Fire and Rescue Service in refuting claims that a former employee had been  harassed, unfairly treated and dismissed due to his mixed race and for making a protected disclosure.

After cross-examination by Caspar, the former South Wales firefighter, Michaele Lloyd dropped his claims.

The Employment Tribunal was told by counsel for Mr Lloyd that the claim was withdrawn and that “the claimant accepts that there is no truth in the allegations of harassment or less favourable treatment, detriment, and dismissal related to race, because of race, and on the grounds of making a protected disclosure by the fire service or individuals.”
