A SOCIAL club worker has been awarded more than £4,000 after reading on a public noticeboard that she had been sacked.
After "eight months of hell", Felixstowe woman Frances Flynn has won her battle to clear her name after she was wrongfully sacked from her job.
Mrs Flynn suffered depression and sickness after she was dismissed from her job as a bar stewardess amid unfounded allegations and malicious gossip.
The first she knew about her sacking was when the committee of the Felixstowe Customs Sports and Social Club posted their minutes and decision on a noticeboard in a public place so that everyone could see it.
But an employment tribunal has now decided Mrs Flynn was unfairly dismissed, has awarded her more than £4,000 compensation and described her employers – the social club – as "inadequate, inept and unfair" in the way they acted.
