A businessman who placed a sign saying "thief" around an employee and marched him to a police station has had to pay him £13,000.

Simon Cremer claimed Mark Gilbert had stolen a cheque for £845 from him.

But Mr Gilbert, who claims he was owed the cash, is understood to have sued his former employer for the distress and humiliation caused.

Mr Cremer, who runs a flooring business in Witham, Essex, said lawyers had advised him to settle out of court.

He said: "I am very disappointed. I am very dissatisfied with the legal system.

I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous. If the guy really was a thief then he should not be able to sue his boss for "humiliation".

so first he steals £845 and for being accused of it he gets a further £13,000. Really? That's just ludicrous!
