Aroma (Northampton) Ltd. v Ang - Compensation on unfair dismissal of foreigner  EAT
Ms Ang came from Malaysia and her work permit expired on 1st May 2006. Before that date she was unfairly dismissed from her job in a restaurant in Northampton. Oddly, the compensation awarded to her by the employment tribunal included £1,500 for the cost of flight and accommodation which would have been involved if she had had to return to England from Malaysia for the tribunal hearing. In fact she never incurred that cost as she stayed on in England.
