We are quoted today onthe BBC business news website. Our expert comments are in relation to a number of staff at fashion firm Ted Baker, who have signed a petition complaining about the company’s founder and chief executive Ray Kelvin. Mr Kelvin is being accused of forcing workers to hug him.
Philip Landau was on LBC News Radio this morning talking to Nick Ferrari on his breakfast show. He was asked to appear as an expert talking about a reported new story about an 88 year old making an employment tribunal claim for discrimination against the NHS. This is considered one of the oldest persons ever to have made such an employment claim.
This was in relation to a number of “white, male, straight, British” executives at advertising agency J Walter Thompson, who claimed they were victims of discrimination after being made redundant. They reportedly lost their jobs following a speech by creative director Jo Wallace saying she wanted to “obliterate” its reputation as a “Knightsbridge boys’ club”.
Philip Landau was talking to Tom Swarbrick on LBC News Radio this evening. This was in relation to John MacDonald, the deputy leader of the Labour Party, making a policy announcement that the Labour Party want to give workers in the so called “gig economy”, similar rights to those in permanent work. This would include eligibility for sick pay, maternity pay and similar benefits.
