Private Investigators London comments on the BBC News article dated 12th April 2013: Apprentice’s Stella English loses Sugar Dismissal Case. And gives information regarding employee investigations

In my professional opinion justice has been seen to be done in this case. It is important to gain all the facts and evidence of a case before taking to an employment tribunal.

According to the BBC News article a former winner of The Apprentice, Stella English has lost her claim for constructive dismissal against Alan Sugar. Lord Sugar told the employment tribunal that he had no case to answer and Ms English was effectively blackmailing him (Case number 3200079/12). Employment Judge, John Warren at the East London Hearing Centre said: “This is a claim which should never have been brought.”
The report goes on to say that Miss English, who earned £100,000 a year working at Viglen claimed that she had no real role at Lord Sugar’s IT firm. The 2011 Apprentice winner resigned from the role in May 2011 and then took up a new role at Lord Sugar’s YouView company. The judge found that Miss English was given a ‘real job’ at Viglen, with “enormous scope for advancement and learning”.
Employment Judge John Warren added:
“The respondent (Lord Sugar) had gone out of (his) way to ensure the claimant was placed in a role at YouView from which she could learn new skills, a job which she agreed to and which she enjoyed doing”
In a statement made after the judgement, Lord Sugar said:
"There was never a case for us to answer but her need for money and fame meant that the whole system was subjected to this charade.
"I have been cleared of a derisory attempt to smear my name and extract money from me.
"The allegations were without substance, and I believe this case was brought with one intention in mind - the presumption that I would not attend the tribunal, that I would not testify and that I would settle out of court, sending Ms English on her way with a tidy settlement.
