However, as part of the settlement reached, both parties were obligated not to make any public comment on the matter. Something that she has now decided not to adhere to once the story was leaked to the press and she felt the need to defend her reputation. Is that the right thing to do? What would you do in her position? Is a dignified silence (and staying within the confines of the legal agreement made) the better option?
She is also calling for a public register of employees who have brought previous tribunal claims whilst others are calling for an overhaul of the tribunal system to prevent vexatious claims being made. The essence of justice is a right to fair hearing even if the allegations are not upheld, so this seems a tricky thing to achieve without interfering with basic human rights.
