Leveratt v Mitie Security (London) Ltd ET/3201280/09

unfair dismissal | reservist's demobilisation | refusal of client to have employee back

In this case, the employer failed to meet its legal obligations to an employee who was a reservist returning from deployment in Afghanistan. The case was complicated by the fact that it was a client's refusal to have the employee back on site that resulted in his dismissal.

From April 2005, Mr Leveratt was employed by security firm OCS Security and was a member of the Territorial Army. In June 2007, Mr Leveratt was mobilised for around one year in Afghanistan.
