Complainant Name:
Mr Ian Perkin

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


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


The matter was resolved when the newspaper marked its records to reflect the complainants concern on two points. It also published a letter which read: You reported my case for unfair dismissal against St Georges 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.
