Apprentice Case Thrown Out

The Employment Tribunal has thrown out a constructive dismissal claim brought by The Apprentice 2010 winner Stella English against Alan Sugar’s company Amshold Group declaring it was “a claim which should never have been brought”.

The tribunal concluded that there was no basis for English to instruct counsel, 39 Essex Street’s Philippa Jackson, as she had resigned from her position.

In a stern judgment handed down this morning, the tribunal panel of three, led by Judge John Warren, stated: “The tribunal considers that the claimant who had sought legal advice prior to putting in her ET1 was ill advised to bring a claim and/or to continue it.”
