Former employees at a Dundee construction company have been awarded a collective sum after it was deemed that they were not given adequate warning about the fate of the company, which led to redundancies.

Workers at the construction firm Muirfield Contracts were given £220,000 after it was decided in an employment tribunal that they were unfairly dismissed. The company had faced legal action because labourers, skilled tradesman and site managers were not consulted about the construction company going into administration last year.

Following the legal action from the union UCATT, workers were awarded eight weeks worth of compensation, amounting to just under £220,000.

The union’s representative for Tayside had claimed that the workers were not filled in on the dire situation the company was in and expressed his happiness about the outcome of the case.  131 union members will receive compensation through a protective award, based on their weekly salary, paid by the Redundancy Payments Service.
