A MAN from Prestatyn who ran an industrial printing firm in Rhyl before it went into liquidation has been awarded a payout of almost £9,000 at an employment tribunal.

Gavin Scott, formerly of Labelsprint, made claims for redundancy, holiday and notice pay, and unpaid wages, all of which were upheld.

He will receive a total of £8,973.50, which can be broken down into the following categories:

  • Redundancy - £3,930
  • Unpaid Wages - £2,096
  • Holiday Pay - £327.50
  • Notice Pay - £2,620

This will be paid to him by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy due to JWS Print Ltd, the company which traded as Labelsprint, now being in liquidation.

Liquidators were appointed to JWS Print Ltd in May 2023 – per Companies House, Mr Scott had been appointed a director of the business in 2013, a year after it was founded.

Labelsprint was based at Cefndy Road Employment Park, and printed 20,000 different product types each year.

Tribunal judge Stuart McLeese ruled in Mr Scott’s favour at the hearing, which was held in Cardiff on January 22.
