Former Blinkbox Music workers launch GBP 10 mln legal action

Monday 12 October 2015 | 11:06 CET | News
A group of former employees of defunct Blinkbox Music service have filed a GBP 10 million class action lawsuit against Australian music streaming company Guvera, which bought Blinkbox Music from Tesco in January, reports The Guardian. The group of around 80 former employees are claiming damages for redundancy pay-outs they say were not honoured. Guvera put Blinkbox Music into administration in June, laying off around 100 employees. The group involved in the lawsuit claim they had received written assurance that redundancy payments would be made if cutbacks were needed.
