Tribunal awards care worker further damages

Tribunal awards care worker further damages
Compensation has been awarded to a care home worker who took her former employer to a tribunal.

Lily Flurey worked at the Moorlands Residential Care Home in Somerset for four years from June 2006 before being sacked in June 2010 and decided to take legal action, the BBC reports.

Ms Flurey raised concerns about standards and working practices at the establishment in 2008 and claims the board at the home then attempted to get her blacklisted from working in the industry in the future.

The professional was awarded damages on the grounds she had been unfairly dismissed last January and has now been granted additional compensation on the basis she was victimised.

The tribunal's verdict read: "The giving of the anonymous information and then the formal referral were malicious and an attempt to get back at the claimant with the respondent believing that it would never come to light."
