Victory for staff against consultancy firm
Staff members at a consultancy firm in Abercynon, Wales, have won an employment and redundancy case against their old bosses.
A total of 25 ex-staff members at MJL Group brought action against the company after they were relieved of their duties without being paid in December 2011, the Cynon Valley Leader reports.
Judgements have so far amounted to £428,388, with four cases yet to be settled.
The tribunals related to a number of hardships the workers felt they had been put through by the organisation, included wages not being received, notice pay remaining outstanding, protective award issues and unpaid holiday.
Matthew Addicott, who worked for MJL for more than a decade, said the staff members were not happy with the way the directors and the company as a whole handled the situation.
"I spent a third of my life working for MJL and for them to treat myself as they did was very upsetting," Mr Addicott added.
