August 29th, 2014 (F1Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Former Caterham F1 Team employees have begun legal action against the team for unfair dismissal.

Following Caterham’s change in ownership at the start of July, over 40 members of staff were let go.

At the end of July a group of former employees announced that they would take legal action against the team.

Today a statement was released on behalf of the group confirming that 38 ex-Caterham employees are beginning legal proceedings against the Leafield based team.

It also denied Caterham’s claims that the employees had received their July salaries.

“38 former staff have today issued employment Tribunal Proceedings against Caterham in light of its failure to settle claims following their unlawful axing by new owners back in July,” reads the statement.

“Due to the amount of money involved in the claims made, further High Court Proceedings are also imminent against the Leafield F1 company.

“Furthermore, contrary to reports made by Caterham, ex-employees have still not been paid their July salaries despite promises that they would be paid for 1-15 July.

“Nor have the employees or their solicitors received any substantive response to their letter to Caterham on 25 July 2014 urging a response to the above matter and inviting settlement.

“The hope is that Caterham will enter into a constructive discussion with the employees and their legal representatives so this matter can be resolved swiftly and amicably.”
