old man’s wife dies, so carer’s hours are cut. there’s only him left. she sues and wins.

How’s this for a story?
I can not make heads or tails on this.  Maybe something has been left out because it makes no sense whatever.
I feel sorry for the old guy.  In his condition and at his age, he shouldn’t have to face this.  I’d really like to know what the judge may have heard that hasn’t been reported, if there is anything to know that isn’t in the article. 

Stumped by this one.

The amount in US dollars is actually in excess of $5,658.00, because as you read you’ll find he must pay more than £3500.

Pensioner forced to pay £3,500 in compensation to carer for constructive dismissal because her hours were cut when his wife died

· George Lomas, 77, was taken to employment tribunal by Jayne Wakefield
· Carer’s hours were cut from 30 hours to 16 after Mr Lomas’s wife Rose died
· Ms Wakefield said she was forced to resign sued for constructive dismissal
· Judge rules carer was unfairly treated and orders pensioner to pay £3,500

By Lucy Crossley

A grieving pensioner has been forced to pay thousands of pounds in compensation to his carer who sued him for constructive dismissal after her hours were cut, because his wife died.

George Lomas, 77, was told at the funeral of his wife Rose that he would be taken to an employment tribunal by carer Jayne Wakefield.
The 55-year-old, who Mr Lomas said he had treated ‘like a daughter’, resigned after having her hours cut when Mr Lomas’s wife Rose, 76, passed away earlier this year.

East Cheshire Council paid Ms Wakefield for working 30 hours a week over five years to care for Mrs Lomas who had Parkinson’s disease.
But she quit and launched legal proceedings against the frail pensioner after her hours were slashed to 16 when Mrs Lomas died on March 4.

Shockingly, the grandfather-of-one said Ms Wakefield approached him the day after his wife’s funeral on March 13, demanding redundancy money.
Mr Lomas still offered to pay Ms Wakefield for the reduced hours for his care but she claimed she was forced to resign on March 20 after ‘nothing was put in writing’.

On Friday a Birmingham employment tribunal awarded Ms Wakefield £3,569 in compensation for constructive dismissal after a judge agreed she was unfairly treated.

Mr Lomas will now have to stump up the bill as he is classed as Ms Wakefield’s employer because the council stopped paying for Mrs Lomas’s care following her death.

The retired accountant was order to pay £1,097.65 damages for breach of contract for failing to notify termination of her employment.
He was also told he must pay a further £2,472.62 in redundancy payments.

‘And when she pushed a letter through the door saying she was suing me - my world fell apart.

‘I will never forgive her. How was I supposed to give notice?

‘You don’t have notice when your wife is going to die.’

The father-of-one said he does not know how he will now afford to pay the compensation and accused the council of ‘washing their hands of the issue’.

He added: ‘I can’t understand how I’m liable.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
