Complainant Name:
Mr Ian Perkin

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Ian Perkin of Surrey complained that an article about his case for unfair dismissal against his employer was inaccurate.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper marked its records to reflect the complainant’s concern on two points. It also published a letter which read: “You reported my case for unfair dismissal against St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust, South London (Brent Packing, October 17 2005) which I won, although without an award of damages. The article suggested my behaviour was like the TV character David Brent and I often refused to talk to my staff. In fact, the employment tribunal found that as a manager I could not be faulted and I engendered a sense of loyalty with staff”.

Report: 73
