A north-WEST London travel agency is facing a mounting bill because its owner has not paid a former employee a settlement awarded by an employment tribunal.
Expert Travel in Golders Green, was taken to the tribunal in Watford last year by Karen Darzy, a part-time secretary, for unlawful deduction of earnings and failure to provide written terms of contract. Mrs Darzy worked at Expert from June to December, 2007.
Mrs Darzy, a 37-year-old mother from Hendon, north west London, was awarded £767 by the tribunal. But Expert joint owner Stephanie Lipman did not pay.
