£20k paid to sacked ‘moaner’

- By Mark Reynolds

A MORTGAGE advisor has been awarded more than £20,000 after she was sacked for “moaning”.

Helen McMahon was dismissed without explanatio­n two days after she complained about her salary, commission and sick pay and told bosses her 48-hour week made her “stressed”.

Mortgage and insurance brokers Heron Financial Limited claimed she was fired in 2019 for poor performanc­e.

But her boss Robin Thomas had sent a text to a colleague in which he said “she was always moaning”.

And Helen – who worked for the Rickmanswo­rth, Herts firm for two years – had been given a bottle of champagne in recognitio­n of her hard work, an employment tribunal in Cambridge heard.

She was awarded £19,552.33 for unfair dismissal, £2,736.38 for unlawful deduction from wages, £586.81 for unpaid commission and sick pay and £252.41 for wrongful dismissal.
