The Million Pound employment tribunal

Some months ago the Leader of Conservative controlled Walsall Council claimed I had a vendetta against the Council. Well, it appears I'm not the only one. Dismissal Payment could reach one million pounds. Ten years ago the Labour Party expelled leaders of their controlling group on Walsall Council because of alleged misdemeanours. Four years ago the Chief Executive and the entire senior management of the Council were effectively replaced following a damning report by the Audit Commission which accused the Council of having a 'culture of bullying'.

Well, perhaps the Leader or Chief Executive of Walsall Council will explain to the public exactly what you have to do to an employee in order for them to be awarded a million pounds in compensation for an Employment Tribunal settlement.
