Olympus whistleblower Woodford sues
Thursday 01 March 2012
Michael Woodford, the whistleblower who exposed the $1.5bn (£940m) fraud at the camera giant Olympus last year only to be sacked, launches his unfair dismissal case against the company in London today.
Mr Woodford is launching the action against the Japanese group in the UK because he spent 30 years under contract to the British arm. He is suing under whistleblowing rules for unlawful discrimination.
Olympus is being defended by the City law firm Slaughter & May.
