Sacked Caterham staff to sue team

Sacked Caterham staff to sue team

The Caterham team are facing legal action from the employees they sacked earlier this month, according to their solicitor.

The Leafield squad laid off more than 40 workers after the team were bought out by a Swiss-Middle Eastern consortium and reported they were forced to let the staff go as part of a "necessary step taken by the new owners of Caterham F1 Team whose priority is the future of the team".

BBC Sport reports that the employees claim 'they were sacked without consultation in breach of employment law and are claiming breach of contract and unfair dismissal'.

Their lawyer Christopher Felton, who believes the number of staff affected could be 50, says they have a very good case.

"The summary dismissal of employees from Caterham was done without warning or consultation and will result in significant compensation claims against the team," he said.
