Blog: Leonie BarrieSue or be sued

Leonie Barrie | 6 November 2003

I had an interesting conversation this-morning with Gerald Newman, practice director at the law firm which represented John Forsbrey, a tailor at Prada who claimed he had been unfairly dismissed after six years at its Bond Street store. The story was one our most-read news items the week it appeared on just-style.com, so it obviously touched a nerve. In our increasingly litigious society it seems employers are always on the look-out for ways to avoid conflicts like this; while employees spend their lives looking for ways to screw their employers! The employment tribunal heard a series of torrid tales about working conditions, and Gerald has agreed to write us an article about conditions behind the scenes in the industry and how employers should handle such situations.
