Dental surgery closure leads to compensation
The closure of a dental surgery has resulted in seven former workers at the facility winning compensation.
Llangollen Dental Practice in North Wales shut suddenly and left the seven women out of a job, Wales Online reports.
They were employed by Pawel Kusmierek and Magda Karasiewicz - but the company ran into financial difficulties and a firm called HC1156 Limited took over it this year.
However, the practice closed within a month and the seven former employees were informed that responsibility for their jobs did not lie with the new bosses.
An employment tribunal, however, found to the contrary and each of the women - depending on their length of employment at the surgery - were handed between £1,500 and £9,000.
Former manager at the practice Susanne Davies said the workers were delighted by the result of the tribunal, adding: "Some women lost their homes and we all had bills to pay."
