Ex-Peacocks employees win legal battle on redundancy

Former Peacocks employees have won a year-long legal battle against the high street retailer after an employment tribunal ruled that the company failed to properly consult over redundancies.

Part of the Edinburgh Woollen Mill Group, Peacocks went into administration in November 2020 after rescue deal talks failed.

Following the Cardiff-based company’s collapse, more than 140 former staff instructed law firm Aticus Law to pursue a claim for a Protective Award on their behalf. Those involved in the legal challenge have now won the right to claim up to eight weeks’ worth of pay, with a cap of £544 per week.

The total value of the claim is estimated to be in excess of £230,000.

Mohammed Balal of Aticus Law, said: “Today’s judgment has come as a huge relief to the dozens of former staff who were made redundant from Peacocks when it collapsed almost 18 months ago – leaving many unemployed, worried about money, and uncertain about what the future had in store.

“Now that the judge has ruled in favour of the workers, we are able to access a Protective Award on their behalf, which is a form of compensation up to 90 days’ gross pay.

“We will be working tirelessly to access the funds as quickly as possible so that our clients can finally draw a line under what has been a difficult ordeal, and to look to move on with their lives once and for all.”
