The Herald reports:
A Crown research institute was justified in firing top climate scientist Dr Jim Salinger, the Employment Relations Authority has found. …
However, in his determination, authority member Leon Robinson said the dismissal was warranted because Dr Salinger had been given clear instructions at numerous meetings that others were to be used as spokespeople and he was to step back from that role.
At the end of the day,employees have to follow the legal instructions of their employers. Salinger refused to do so, and suffered the consequences.Tags: employment law, Jim Salinger
