In discrimination cases, where there has been a breach of the Equality Act 2010 by the employer, the two most important categories are injury to feelings and loss of earnings. Unlike unfair dismissal, there is no limit on the amount of compensation that can be awarded in discrimination cases.

What responsibility do employers, such as EM Law, hold to perform proper and ethical due diligence of their employees for matters directly related to their professionalism and ethics? EM Law employs employment lawyer, Rhodri Thomas. Thomas has been publicly accused of being a principal in a criminal conspiracy to defraud, defame, and blacklist a foreign worker whistleblower, Steven Kalavity (SDK). Thomas did this as a practicing senior employment lawyer with global law firm Watson Farley and Williams (WFW). Norwegian based multi-national corporation Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) UK subsidiary, PGS Exploration (UK) Limited, 4 The Heights, Weybridge, Surrey, KT13 0NY (PGSUK), engaged WFWs Thomas to “negotiate” the final terms and conditions of an employment termination settlement contract agreement (SCA). The signing of this “negotiated” SCA ended SDKs career 5 December 2013. SDK is a USA citizen who was sponsored and employed on a Tier 2 visa by PGSUK. The SCA contained contractual Confidentiality clauses intended to prohibit parties from disparaging one another. However, the exception is the publication of protected content, or whistleblowing, as defined by the UK Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA).
SDK has published over one-hundred articles and several more image files disparaging PGS and its stakeholders, including WFW and Thomas, since signing the SCA. One only has to conduct a simple Google™ search to find several of these published images and articles of protected public disclosures. Obviously, the SCA formed by Thomas is a total disaster. The sheer number of publications show that Thomas is an incompetent buffoon of a lawyer who did not protect the PGSUK. Or the publications show that Thomas is a criminal who was bribed to misuse his credentials to protect corrupt and criminal directors and executives. So, why would EM Law hire a lawyer who was either incompetent or a criminal? EM Law, in the view of SDK, has become a co-conspirator in the defrauding of multiple international government agencies, corporate shareholders, and of course the foreign-worker whistleblower through bribes or negligence. Their failure of due diligence has perverted the course of justice and deceived customers. What evil depravity must exists when law firm employs and helps criminals who have intentionally hurt a law-abiding foreign worker and his family, including young children?
Silence implies consent. The UK Limitation Act 1980 allows one-year from publication date for a party to file a defamation law suit. One test to determine whether EM Law is an unethical law firm that protects criminals and perverts the course of justice is through reviewing if Thomas has ever initiated any litigation on behalf of his clients or himself for the numerous online publications. SDK first began publishing content online regarding WFW Thomas’ confidence fraud 3 July 2013 on the LinkedIn™ platform. The confidence fraud would have never been successful except for the fact that SDK was a foreign worker. But, the fact that SDK was a USA citizen and sponsored Tier 2 visa meant that PGS, and WFW broke multiple laws more than the one’s that were being covered-up. Herein lies the problem. The SCA that Thomas was involved with was illegal and this is why it is impotent. It is why Thomas will not respond nor comment on any accusatory publication. No one is compelling Thomas to invoke the Confidentiality terms and conditions. Why would EM Law rather protect an accused criminal, Thomas, than help a foreign worker whistleblower, SDK? The accusations with evidence have been posted online since 20 September 2015! Why isn’t EM Law not a co-conspirator in the (alleged) defrauding of the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK Border Agency, and whistleblower SDK? SDK believes that they are.
