Worker takes ac­tion against Dunnes

Bray People - - NEWS -

A GREY­STONES man al­legedly sus­pended from his role of fi­nan­cial di­rec­tor at Dunnes is to bring pro­ceed­ings against the com­pany to have him re­stored to his po­si­tion.

Larry Howard, New Road, Grey­stones, has said that Di­rec­tor Mar­garet Hef­fer­nan said that she wanted ‘f ***ing men or mice’, dur­ing a meet­ing be­fore he was put on paid leave.

He al­leges that he was treated in a de­mean­ing man­ner by Mrs. Hef­fer­nan.

The High Court has given Mr. Howard per­mis­sion to pro­ceed with the case. In an af­fi­davit, Mr. Howard said that he had a close work­ing re­la­tion­ship with Andrew Street, who switched from Dunnes chief op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer to Su­perquinn CEO.

Mr. Howard said that he was treated dif­fer­ently fol­low­ing the move, based on the pre­sump­tion that he would also leave and go to Su­perquinn. The mat­ter will be be­fore the court again on Mon­day.
