The plaintiff’s principal claim against their former employer was for damages for the wrongful purported termination of their employment in 2015. The plaintiff had been the defendant company’s chief executive officer since 2001. The respondent purported to terminate the plaintiff’s employment for breach of its share trading policy for its employees and also because the plaintiff allegedly caused one of its subsidiary companies to enter into a lease to the plaintiff’s advantage without authority and without obtaining prior approval for that transaction from the Board.
Michael Trim appeared on behalf of the defendant, instructed by McCullough Robertson.
