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.
