Not forced to take a demotion.

I have been a manager for a not for profit organisation for more than 10 years. About a year ago a new CEO was appointed. I should’ve got the job but she got in first and now she thinks I am a threat because I’ve been in the organisation much longer and have lots of friends in the workforce and on the board. For the last few months under the new CEO my health has been suffering because she created a culture of fear, she would tell people she wanted to pull me into line. She’s organised a restructure and has levelled false allegations and disciplinary proceedings against me. I was about ready to resign.

When I approached Alan McDonald he told me about my entitlement to a redundancy and that I didn’t have to accept a demotion in pay and position. He pointed out that the CEO was demoralising me so that I would resign or be sacked before my redundancy entitlements were due.

He advised that I could make a General Protections claim which I did. I was astounded when the CEO’s attitude changed completely and I was able to work a couple more months before receiving a very valuable redundancy. McDonald Murholme worked hard and fast to save my job and reassured me that I didn’t need to retire in disgrace but received a redundancy and time to find another job.

Our clients' satisfaction is pivotal to our own success.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend McDonald Murholme. From the initial consultation, right through to the resolution process, the entire team was supportive, knowledgable and approachable and made what can be a difficult situation much easier. Specifically Trent and Alexandra provided a high level of service, and engaged with me in a very personable manner. I am extremely satisfied with the service I received.

    I couldn't recommend the team from McDonald Murholme more. Mr Sam Nottle was efficient, professional and achieved a wonderful result. If you are questioning whether to go ahead with an employment matter legally, I would urge you to do so. The team at McDonald Murholme made the process easy & reduced all of my anxiety and stress. Thank you again, Mr Nottle & team, I can't express my appreciation enough.

    I found Arthur Hambas & Katherine Boyles extremely professional & compassionate in my dealings with them. After telling Arthur that I felt the details surrounding my redundancy felt wrong he took on my case & secured me a better payout from my employer. I would not hesitate to recommend Mcdonald Murholme to anyone that has a feeling that something isn't quite right. I greatly appreciate everything you did.
