Taking action against a care home
I live in Wales but have an on-going complaint with Derbyshire County Council since March 2010 about abuse/neglect my mum received whilst in a care home in Derby. My mum has since passed away. I have exhausted the complaints procedure and have been treated badly by all involved waiting months for requests/responses. I am very unhappy with how my mum was treated and how my complaint was dealt with. I would like to take legal action against the care home and the county council but know nothing about legal processes. Do you have a solicitor that can help in Derby?
I have been employed 3+years. I was employed at the same time as 7 other colleagues, same job title, objectives. The job had a grade, . Normal practice is to appoint below the standard as above the standard post holders should undertake additional responsibilities. My colleagues were appointed to above the standard salaries; I was the only one to be appointed at the lowest point on the grade which is below the standard. The pay structure was revealed to me recently, and I believe that I should have been appointed to an above the standard wage. I have exhausted the internal grievance which was not upheld. Do I have a case for discrimination at Employment Tribunal?
