Leigh Day is acting for Miriam O’Reilly who is claiming that her removal from BBC’s Countryfile in November 2008 was sex and age discrimination and that the failure to give her work subsequently was victimisation. Her case has attracted an enormous amount of interest and support from many young women in their 50s. It has also generated a huge amount of media coverage.
Leigh Day discrimination partner, Camilla Palmer, is representing Miriam. She says ‘this is the first case of its kind to reach the Employment Tribunal, despite a number of previous allegations of ageism and sexism in the media’.
The Hearing commences on Thursday 4 November at Central London Employment Tribunal and will continue until 19 November.
Further developments will be reported on this website where appropriate.
