Colin Tenner v PwC

I have a personal interest in this case which came to tribunal in May this year. I have watched with baited breath, but seen no outcome published as yet, has anyone else seen anything?

I've no idea

but as it's all been quiet since May I'd speculate that an out of "court" settlement was reached with appropriate gagging clauses - could be wrong though.

a claim of race discrimination from partner Dunstan Pedropillai at the Croydon tribunal reminded me of Mr Tenner's case in Belfast last year.

As the previous commentator has pointed out from published sources, no decision has been reached yet. I've contacted Mr Tenner's representatives who say that a decision is due "any day now" - but that's been the case since the autumn.

Tribunals involving partners are extremely rare since (as PwC argued in the Tenner case) the claimants are part of the partnership that employs them. It's odd for two cases involving the same firm to come to light, so I'm trying to find out if there's any underlying explanation.
