Manager wins constructive dismissal case
A woman has been successful in her claim of constructive dismissal, the Liverpool Daily Post reports.
According to the publication, former care home manager Carole Boden will appear at a further hearing during which a settlement will be reached concerning compensation for lost earnings, unpaid overtime and hurt feelings.
In her role, she was involved in the management of homes in Hoylake and Rock Ferry, which are situated on the Wirral Peninsula.
During a tribunal in April, the 62-year-old, who used to work for Polder Care homes, said she refused to fake a series of routine inspection documents and consequently suffered months of bullying and humiliation.
In a written judgement, Keith Robinson described the care home owners and senior management as "vindictive" and "small-minded".
Commenting on her victory, Ms Boden said: "It has still not sunk in yet. I am in shock.
"It was a very long time coming and I am just so relieved I was believed. Maybe I will stop reliving it all now."
