CRT has been ordered to pay a former employee more than $20,000 after she was sacked from her job as manager at Balclutha.

A decision from the Employment Relations Authority says Karla Gilder was unjustifiably dismissed from her job as retail manager of the Balclutha CRT store in March.

Gilder was dismissed after advising another staff member to deal with bonus stock. Her actions had contravened CRT policy, but Gilder said she was acting in accordance with her training and observations. She said she had no knowledge of the policy.

Authority member Michael Loftus said CRT had breached its own procedures in Gilder's dismissal and had not allowed Gilder to respond to allegations against her.

He ordered CRT to pay Gilder $19,732.80 in lost wages and $8000 in compensation for humiliation, loss of dignity and injury to feelings.
