Ex-manager loses unfair dismissal claim


Share post:

A former manager lost a claim before the Employment Rights Tribunal (ERT) yesterday that he was unfairly dismissed on reaching age 65, but he did not walk away empty-handed.

Norman Grant brought the action against the Barbados Beach Club for terminating his employment on October 30, 2017, ten days after he reached his 65th birthday.

Grant worked for the club from 1996 to 2009 when he resigned to take up other employment. In 2010, he was re-employed in the position of duty manager with a $5 000 a month salary on an oral contract.

Managing director Felix Broome had revealed that there was an understanding Grant would be employed for two years, though he continued to work until 2017.
