Arlesey Town Council today announced that the employment tribunal brought against it by Elsie Hare had been concluded in its favour, with the council awarded costs of £350.

Mrs Hare had claimed constructive dismissal after resigning from her position in February 2015, two months before a town council disciplinary hearing.

A statement posted this afternoon on the town council’s Facebook page reads: “Arlesey Town Council can today report that the employment tribunal brought against the Council by the former town clerk, Mrs Elsie Hare, has been concluded with a positive outcome for ATC.

“Mrs Hare’s claim of constructive unfair dismissal has not been successful and has been dismissed. Furthermore, ATC has been awarded costs of £350.
