A private company was yesterday ordered to pay over BD5,000 to a Bahraini employee who was arbitrarily sacked from his job by the company. This was announced by the Labour Court, which issued its verdict in the case after the employee lodged a complaint last year claiming that he was fired from his job for no valid reason.

The details of the case showed that the plaintiff had joined the company as a salesman in September 2018. It was also proven that the company had repeatedly requested extra services, which were not mentioned in the work contract, from the employee.

The lawyer said the company gave the employee only a notice of 10 days to leave, and she added that the termination decision came a few days after he requested to be compensated for the extra work he did.

The lawyer demanded the company in the court to pay her client a compensation of BD5,400, but the judges ordered for compensation worth BD5,004 after deliberating the case for a couple of weeks.
