A number of former employees are taking action against Caterham citing "unlawful axing" by the team's new owners.
A brief statement issued today reads:
"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. 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, the 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."
