A bakery has been forced to pay compensation to a worker sacked for not turning up – because he was in jail
A BAKERY chain has been ordered to pay £650 compensation to a worker who never turned up for months – because he was in jail.
Joseph Carter, 42, was sentenced to six months for dangerous driving and breach of the peace.
But he sued bakers Aulds for unfair dismissal when they axed him.
Initially, the tribunal judge awarded Carter nothing because he contributed to his sacking.
But an appeal hearing overruled that and Aulds must now pay up because of “procedural flaws” in their handling of the dismissal.
