Radio 4 - Employment Tribunal Drama

  • Posted

Here's something a bit lighter than normal...

Yesterday's Afternoon Drama on Radio 4 was a dramatised employment tribunal hearing, with an ex-police officer claiming unfair selection for redundancy on grounds of her gender.  The first five minutes are set in the Claimant's waiting room (with a flustered barrister turning up late), and the rest is the tribunal hearing - unfortunately, with a stereotypical old-school employment judge and overbearing Respondent's Counsel.

Anorak-ey gripes apart (eg Counsel told off because documents weren't lodged two months in advance of hearing - seriously?), it's actually quite good.  It will be on iPlayer for another six days - listen here.
