Those damned pesky employment laws

The EMA (Northern) had a special meeting of its Board scheduled for today.  Board Chair Graham Mountfort had hinted strongly that CEO Alasdair Thompson would be sacked, saying Mr Thompson’s future would be the subject of the meeting, and He won’t be an advocate for us in the future.”

Now we find that the meeting has been canceled. Seems someone on the EMA Board must have recalled that our employment laws still don’t permit employers to sack employees at will (apart from in the first 90 days of their employment), and that the law gives Thompson, like most other employees, the protection of the right to a fair investigation following due process.

  1. How on earth can Thompson remain in the position now that he has zero credibility. Hopefully he’ll realise this and do the honourable thing by resigning.
