Former Ludlow town clerk wins unfair dismissal fight

This blog has long taken an interest in the sometimes colourful affairs of Ludlow Town Council.

It is back in the Shropshire Star today:
Veronica Calderbank quit her role at Ludlow Town Council in June last year, claiming she was left with no choice after being asked to work long hours without a break, despite councillors knowing she had a crippling back problem. 
At the end of a month-long employment tribunal hearing in Birmingham, it was ruled she had been unfairly constructively dismissed. 
A hearing to assess the amount of money she will be awarded has been set for February 18. Judge Rohan Pirani suggested Mrs Calderbank might want her job back in view of the substantial losses in salary and pension, and told Councillor Jim Smithers, Ludlow’s mayor, and Councillor Nick Holcombe: “We as a tribunal can order you to reinstate her.”
