An employment tribunal has ruled against the former chief executive of Brixton, who was claiming compensation on the grounds of unfair dismissal.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Tim Wheeler has requested an additional Ã‚Â£1.88 million on top of his pension when he retired, which was rejected by the property group’s directors.
Mr Wheeler is accused by chair of Brixton Lady Patten of launching “guerrilla war” on the firm when his request was not met.
The judge at the employment tribunal said the claimant “pursued the issue of his pension package with single minded determination”.
Brixton was bought by Segro for Ã‚Â£107 million in August.
Elsewhere, law firm Dickinson Dees recently reported that the rising numbers of employment tribunal claims could cost UK employers Ã‚Â£2.6 billion over the next three years.
James Wilders, an employment partner at company, said UK legislation is a major cause of this increase and that this comes at a time when many businesses are already struggling to recover from the recession.
