Compel has been ordered to pay £1,000 to a former employee of Info'Products for unpaid wages. Ryan Diblee, a former account co-ordinator at reseller Info'Products, won his case on 13 April at Chelmsford County Court. He was awarded £955 for commission deducted from his salary between April and December 1998. Diblee, who represented himself in the case, told The Register: "I’m really pleased. I expected to win because Info’Products was morally wrong with what it did." Diblee issued a county court summons against Info'Products in February after he lost his job when he and 150 of his colleagues were made redundant after Compel took over Info’Products. George Fodor, the former Info’Products legal manager who is co-ordinating a joint claim against Info’Products and Compel by around 60 other ex-staff for unfair dismissal, was delighted with the verdict. He said: "It will set a precedent for the other claims related to the payout of legally-entitled commissions. We are hopeful of getting a court date soon, and are very confident of our victory." Diblee’s claim was separate and not issued in connection with the joint legal action. He is now an account manager at Matlock-based reseller Servo. ®
