Our client was employed in the area of supply and repair of mining equipment at Quarry & Mining Equipment Limited . Due to a downturn in business and stating that our client lacked construction plant fitter qualifications, the Company made the decision to make our client’s role redundant. Our client claimed that a genuine redundancy situation did not exist and that the issue of qualifications had never been raised before.
Able Solicitors secured an award of €25,000 for our client as the Tribunal found that our client was fit to carry out further works on a contract Quarry & Mining Equipment Limited held, therefore the Tribunal agreed to award our client €25,000 compensation.
HIGH COURT: A farmer’s action against a waste-recycling firm over an alleged failure to complete a deal to buy some of his land for €1.8 million has been settled, the High Court has heard.
Gerard Lynch had claimed he entered an agreement in 2009 to sell 12 acres of his land to the owners of Panda Waste for the purpose of extending their facility neighbouring the Lynch property at Beauparc, Navan, Co Meath.
Mr Lynch and his wife Anna Maria had sued Nurendale Ltd, trading as Panda, and a director and shareholder, Eamon Waters, over their alleged failure to complete the contract. The defendants also counter-claimed against the Lynches.
Patrick Butler SC, for the couple, said yesterday the case had settled. No details were given.
