Teacher 'considering unfair dismissal compensation claim'
Compensation on the grounds of unfair dismissal may be sought by a former teacher after she lost her job.
According to online resource STV, Linda Ross was sacked from her role at Longhaugh Primary School in Dundee three years ago following a career spanning more than three decades at the educational institute.
Ms Ross told the news source she had been victim of a "witch hunt" to drive her out of her post and an employment tribunal has since ruled that she was relieved if her duties unjustly.
She lost her job after her husband Victor wrote a letter to her bosses that raised allegations of "violence and indiscipline" at the school.
With this in mind, Ms Ross is now considering whether or not to pursue legal action and a damages settlement.
This comes after the Northampton Chronicle & Echo reported that a tribunal is taking place in Bedford after music teacher Sarah Cameron accused her bosses of unfair dismissal.
