Publication: Evening Chronicle (Newcastle Upon Tyne)


Mr Douglas Pearson of the Park Hotel complained that a report of an employment tribunal was inaccurate when it stated that the accountant at the centre of the case had worked for the establishment. He was also concerned that the report referred to a previous article from 2005 in which hygiene standards at the hotel had been criticised.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to meet with the complainant to discuss the possibility of reporting more positive aspects of the business in addition to marking its records to reflect the concerns raised.

Report: 74
