Employee settlement is a farce: R. G. Falla boss
Wednesday 12th December 2012, 10:00AM GMT.
FURTHER details have emerged about a wrongly signed witness statement that caused the immediate adjournment of an R. G. Falla unfair dismissal hearing.
Director Paul Mason confirmed yesterday that the piece of evidence presented to the tribunal panel was a statement he wrote as part of the company’s dismissal of ex-foreman John Haining.
Mr Haining had sworn in the face of managing director Peter Gregory at the company Christmas ball after becoming drunk and rowdy.
But Mr Mason, pictured, said he was surprised that the signature at the bottom of the document was not his.
‘I had previously signed the statement but I don’t know where that copy came from,’ he said.
He said he was unable to comment on the settlement. ‘I think it’s a farce – I can’t believe any employee can be rewarded for abusing the MD,’ he said.
