Pannell Kerr Forster will face an English ICA investigat-ions committee hearing next month over its treatment of former partner Derek Turner, forced into early retirement through illness.
Turner says he is #80,000 out of pocket as a result of a ‘near worthless’ insurance policy signed by PKF with Permanent Insurance.
Among other complaints, Turner claims PKF reneged on an agreement to fund his dispute with the insurer, costing him a further #8,000 in costs.
The committee will hear the case on 1 December and decide whether to take it to a disciplinary board, which could impose penalties on PKF.
Turner, who suffers from a severe form of arthritis, said: ‘I know my complaints are well-founded and I have provided documentary proof.’
Mick Maton, managing partner at the office where Turner was based, said he was unaware of the hearing date.
