Man succeeds in unfair dismissal claim
A man who lost his job last year has been successful in his claim of unfair dismissal.
Ricky Pitt was sacked from his role at Roc Fencing - which was a provider of a variety of fencing products, including concrete, steel and timber - the Kidderminster Shuttle reports.
Two weeks after he lost his job, the firm went into administration.
Mr Pitt claimed that the organisation, which was based on Stourport Road in Kidderminster, did not follow the correct disciplinary and dismissal procedures.
Recently, the worker was awarded £20,900 for unfair dismissal plus £801 in unpaid wages.
His wife, Louise, was present along with her husband at the hearing. She also lost her job as a customer services personnel member with a different company at the same time as her spouse's dismissal.
Mr Pitt, who has two children, is now looking for new full-time work in order to support his family.
