You'd have thought that a modest award at the end of an employment tribunal would have been an end to the matter.
This was not quite the case for a Mr Raine, from Burnhope in County Durham, who was expecting a cheque for the balance of his cash award, following an employment tribunal win.
Instead of a cheque for the entire £2,300 he got a cheque for £1,000 and the remaining amount in coins from 1p to 20p.
The story clearly has a humorous side to it, but it also demonstrates how some employers may view the employment tribunal system.
