Katherine Hitchins v. Babbé LLP: Guernsey Tribunal Decision

October 05, 2020 - Decision by the Employment and Discrimination Tribunal, in Guernsey, in the Channel Islands, finding that a partner in Babbé law firm was "constructively dismissed and that it was an unfair dismissal" following a "false" and "maliciously motivated" allegation by another partner, Robert Varley, in Katherine D. Hitchins v. Babbé LLP. Editor's Note: In an action that indicates either preferential treatment or a legal challenge, the 'Extended Reasons' for this 'Decision' were published on the 'Tribunal Decisions 2020' part of the Government of Guernsey's website and then removed, meaning it is the only published Decision for 2020 that does not include this information. When asked why this had been done, a Tribunal spokesperson told OffshoreAlert today: "I am not in a position to comment on the reasons the Tribunal's full decision was taken down. I will advise you when they are back up on the site." OffshoreAlert obtained the 'Extended Reasons' separately, from a 'concerned individual'. Meanwhile, Robert Varley, a funds and corporate lawyer whose "false" allegation was determined to have been "motivated by frustration, revenge, or possibly anger", left Babbé in 2018 and became a partner of Appleby law firm, in the British Virgin Islands.
