Woman goes to tribunal over alleged constructive dismissal
A worker who resigned from her position as a secretary with a local authority is taking her former employer to tribunal over alleged constructive dismissal.
Debbie Huber resigned from her position as a secretary with Preston council, which is headquartered at the city's town hall on Lancaster Road, earlier this year.
She had worked for the organisation for 17 years, the Lancashire Evening Post reports.
A three-day hearing recently took place but it was decided that further evidence needs to be presented to the presiding employment judge.
Ms Huber, who acted as a personal assistant to a number of councillors, said she was unable to comment on the case.
Meanwhile, Councillor Ken Hudson said: "Debbie was a very good secretary. She resigned because she felt she no longer wanted to work for the council and I'm very sorry it's ended up in an employment tribunal."
