Pension Credit Win

In June 2013 Robinson Wilson Solicitors acted on behalf of a claimant in a pension credit appeal and won. By way of background, the claimant's claim for pension credit was rejected on the grounds that the claimant should make a joint claim for pension credit with the individual he cared for. The DWP alleged that he was a member of a couple and should there claim as a couple. The Claimant argued that he was not a part of a couple, and that in fact he was a carer. The First Tier tribunal decided in favour of the claimant. However the DWP asked the tribunal to set aside its judgement on grounds that the tribunal judge had not considered all the evidence. The Judge refused to set aside the decision and the appeal was allowed. This decision unlocked around £7000-£8000 in backdated pension credit payments for the claimant.

Unfair dismissal Victory in Employment tribunal

We recently represented a former employee of Manchester Mental Health & Social Care Trust, in the employment tribunal and won. The claimant brought a claim of age discrimination in an unfair dismissal and age discrimination case. The panel of judges decided that the claimant had been unfairly dismissed and they also awarded the claimant a financial award.
