Hello everyone, hoping someone can help!!


So...42 days ago (come 27th Oct) I was awarded £33,518.75 for unfair dismissal from a company called GE Caledonian Ltd. (General Electric) in Scotland. I have heard nothing within this time from anyone regarding the award or what will happen next (payment, etc.), just a copy of the tribunals judgement. As this company is part of GE, they themselves are a big company and GE is obviously the biggest company in the world so they cannot disappear and have plenty of money to pay.


I am basically wondering what my next move should be come wednesday (27th). I have read "The Judgement" but it is pretty confusing in regards with what to do when in Scotland. I have a copy of my judgement which clearly sets out my payment. My lawyer let me down a week before the tribunal and I had to represent myself against two of GE's corporate lawyers, so the thought of having to go through more law shenanigans to get this award is quite depressing. If anyone has any advice or questions, I'm all ears!!

Scotland is not effectively very much different from England in this respect. Contact the tribunal office in the first instance (they may have appealed) and if there is no reason why the payment has not been made, you will have to start going through the civil courts to enforce it. In the first instance a letter waning them you intend to take legal action if they do not pay within 28 days, followed by a civil claim if they don't.

If you want an accurate assessment of your case and prospects, you should get legal opinion from a lawyer - not a public forum. Anything I tell you is for guidance only, and is based on my experience of the law in the context of what details you provide.
