Ralph Fannin v Liddington Electrical


Liddington Electrical of Whangarei defended a claim of unjustified dismissal by Ralph Fannin. Well done Liddington for taking a stand.
Liddington Electrical says Mr Fannin has serious criminal convictions which he failed to disclose at the job interview when asked by Mr Liddington. When Mr Liddington became aware of the criminal convictions, Mr Fannin
attempted to negotiate an exit from Liddington Electrical in a manner that Mr Liddington
considered amounted to blackmail. Mr Fannin resigned before Mr Liddington was able to
properly consider the situation.
Mr Fannin has criminal convictions for credit card fraud and identity theft while
employed as a teacher at Auckland Grammar School.
The Employment Relations Authority found he resigned and was not dismissed.
