Lecturer made redundant amid role confusion wins £55,000

Partner in our Employment Team, Keely Rushmore comments in People Management regarding a case involving a teacher who after being told she'd be Head of Teaching when she came to the UK from Australia, was instead made Senior Lecturer, but was disappointed by the change.
