Miriam O’Reilly Wins Ageism case Against BBC
Former Countryfile presenter Miriam O’Reilly has won an employment tribunal claim against the BBC for age discrimination & victimisation, but is unsuccessful in her sexism claim. She was seeking compensation in the employment tribunal case, which the BBC had said it would “defend vigorously” but now “accepts the findings”.
Ms O’Reilly said the judgment is “going to have huge implications for all broadcasters.” She is now expected to go back to work for the BBC, and also faces a substantial cash payout.
Update: a copy of the employment tribunal’s judgment is available on the judiciary.gov website.
