Rose Gibb, former Chief Executive of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, has lost her High Court battle for a £175,000 severance payment. Regardless of whether or not the Trust board were right dismiss Ms Gibb (and Dr Crippen has a different view from … Continue reading
The government published its long-awaited and heavily trailed Equality Bill yesterday. Employment lawyer Darren Newman confesses that he’s far more excited about this than an adult should be. He really does need to get out more. It was Darren who told me last … Continue reading
