Golf club deducted sick pay unlawfully, tribunal has decided
The owners of a former council-owned golf club have been ordered to pay a member of staff £4,892.45 for unlawfully deducting sick pay, an industrial tribunal has ruled.
Davron Hackney had lodged the claim against RM Estates, trading as Malkins Bank Golf Club, with the final hearing heard at Birmingham Employment Tribunal on 21st November.
Mr Hackney sought the £4,892.45 in unpaid sick pay, saying a contract he had signed with the new owners could not supersede the contract he had with Cheshire East Council at the time of the sale.
The tribunal was told that Malkins Bank was a public course run by Cheshire East Council. Mr Hackney worked as an assistant club shop manager and then golf club assistant.
