2nd wave cases v Fife Council – 29th July 2014

Update – 2nd wave cases v Fife Council – 29th July 2014
We attended a Preliminary Hearing in Dundee on Tuesday 29th July to address the equal pay cases against Fife Council. All of our cases have been settled up to 1st April 2007 when the Council implemented Single Status, the period after this date is known as 2nd wave. We have been involved in long running 2nd wave hearings in other Councils and we therefore proposed a number of steps to be taken by Fife Council to progress these cases. The Employment Judge has allowed a period for this legal preparation up to the 8th September 2014 when there will be another Preliminary Hearing in Dundee. We have also agreed to liaise with the Council before this next hearing to see if we can enter settlement discussions. We will update the website when there are any further developments.
 
If the Council is unwilling to settle these 2nd wave cases then a further timetable will be set by the Employment Judge to commence a full  2nd wave hearing and all the preparation required. This may take some time. If a settlement offer is made we have a professional duty to write to you. If there are no further updates on the website and you have not received a letter then it is likely that settlement discussions are ongoing. As you will appreciate it is not always possible to post public statements when we are in negotiations. Please be reassured however that we are doing everything possible to progress these cases. We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.
