Accountants' secretary wins blog sacking tribunal
Accounting firm's secretary who was sacked for writing a blog wins her tribunal case
A secretary sacked from an accountancy firm for writing a blog has won her
tribunal case for unfair dismissal.
The blog was written under a pseudonym about her life in the French capital,
and rarely mentioned work, she claimed.
A Paris tribunal in Paris upheld her complaint and awarded Sanderson €44,000
(£29,900) damages – equivalent to a year’s wages – plus legal costs. Dixon
Wilson will also have to repay the French government unemployment benefit she
claimed after her dismissal, reported The Guardian.
