Aberdeen social worker wins £38,394 over unfair dismissal

AN ABERDEEN social worker has been handed nearly £40,000 after being unfairly dismissed by the council.

Veda Golconda was awarded £38,394 in compensation and another £1,200 for fees.

An employment tribunal heard how Mr Golconda was sacked by Aberdeen City Council, having been “singled out” over the use of the internet for non-work purposes.

In a written ruling, Judge Hosie said: “We were not persuaded that Mr Golconda contributed in any way to his dismissal.

“We found that the final warning was invalid.

“The use of the internet in breach of the council’s policy was widespread and had been condoned by his line managers.”

Frank Lefevre of Quantum Claims, which represented Mr Golconda, said: “The tribunal seems to share my view that this is one of the most unfair of dismissals.

“It is rare to see them make a future loss award in as much as a whole year’s salary.”
