Three former employees of the Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) have won over £42,000 following their resignations.

James Tyson, former campaign co-ordinator, Nicholas Brown, who used to be general secretary, and former employee Louisa Smith lodged a claim for constructive unfair dismissal at Birmingham Employment Tribunal, citing allegations of bullying and intimidation, Motorcycle News reports.

The members of staff were working for MAG (UK) Ltd of Oakslade Station Road, Hatton, and along with the bullying and intimidation claims, they also cited breach of contract and unpaid wages.

Following a five-day hearing, tribunal judge Mr David Kearsley found in favour of the employees and ordered MAG to pay over £42,000 in compensation.

Neil Liversidge, who helps run MAG, explained to the news provider that the organisation had been struggling financially despite its large membership base and has since formed a new organisation called Motor Cycle Action Group Ltd at Hatton.

MAG is led by volunteers and creates campaigns to protect and promote motorcycling and the interests of its riders.
