"With regard to the applicant's loss of wages, he was paid 64p per hour for a 40 hour week which works out at a weekly wage of £25.60. He was out of work for 4 weeks so that he has lost 4 weeks wages. In addition we are entitled to take into account the circumstances of his dismissal; the fact that it was abrupt, that a sacking without notice involves a degree of stigma and that furthermore the applicant had 11 years' service with the respondents and he has lost the benefit of that."
