Laura Hayes Drops Employment Tribunal

'A FORMER secretary of Dundee Football Club has withdrawn her unfair dismissal claim against the club.

A FORMER secretary of Dundee Football Club has withdrawn her unfair dismissal claim against the club.

Laura Hayes raised an employment tribunal against the Dens Park side at the end of last year following her exit from the club in September 2013.

The long serving club secretary was suing bosses for unfair dismissal, sex discrimination, breach of contract and unlawful deduction from her wages.

Mrs Hayes, of Dundee, has now dropped her case against the club, but it remains unclear whether or not a settlement was reached between the parties.

She said she could not comment on the case or reveal any details on why she has withdrawn her claim.

A spokesman for the club said: "We will not be making any comment."

In autumn last year, Dundee FC bosses carried out an internal investigation into complaints against Mrs Hayes, believed to be linked to claims a player was having an affair with another member of staff.

The probe, which centred on five specific complaints against the secretary, resulted in her suspension and she later left the club.

She had worked there for almost 20 years , through two periods of administration, and was well known in the local community for getting involved in fundraising events.

A judgment on the case simply stated: "The complaints of unfair dismissal, unlawful deduction from wages, sex discrimination and breach of contract, having been withdrawn by the claimant, are dismissed."

Mrs Hayes' lawyer, Deborah Miller, of Simpson and Marwick, was unavailable for comment.'

Good news for both parties, I think/hope?!

Who knows but why start raking over old muck again ?

If they've settled then there must have been ground given on both sides

Before i start im not blaming Laura or the club. 

Im not very happy that money that could have been used elsewhere has been used to pay an employee (If she has had a settlement) when we dont know what has happened.

So we have every right to want to know. We wont but everyone automatically presumes that the club is to blame and that there is no way that Laura could ever have been guilty of anything.

Thats certainly the way it comes across.

Why do we have every right to know? Dundee FC is a business. Do the punters in your pub have every right to know why you'd have paid off a member of staff for example?
