Golwg reports on Tribunal findings

Welsh language magazine Golwg has printed an article about the Tribunal findings in its 6 October issue.

In addition to material covered in previous press reports, the article includes the following (translated):

An Assembly Member is requesting an independent inquiry to the issues raised by the judgment of the Employment Tribunal in a case dealing with a body responsible for administering Community First monies in the Wrexham area. Mark Isherwood also wants to know why the Welsh Government asked AVOW to administer the money after the member of staff, Genny Bove, had already won her case in March…

At the beginning of the week, the charity confirmed that it will not be appealing against the judgment of discrimination against the disabled worker… the charity did not make ‘reasonable adjustments’ in order to meet her needs. The Chief Officer, John Gallanders behaved unreasonably towards her by insisting that the meeting to hear her complaints was held in a room with the exact lighting that would cause the migraines…

The Trustees were under the thumb of John Gallanders…

…In a letter seen by Golwg, Carl Sargeant has stated, ‘…if the original judgment of the Tribunal stands the Welsh Assembly Government will be asking AVOW to confirm what steps they are taking to deal with the management issues…’
