In circumstances where a provider is directed to pay compensation to a complainant, following the formal investigation of a complaint, the compensation cannot be increased to account for the cost of any professional assistance used by a complainant. Complainants should be aware that costs charged as a percentage of any compensation will have the effect of reducing the compensation paid to them by the provider.
