Dr Makanjuola had taken his employer to the employment tribunal alleging 69 separate allegations. The tribunal dismissed all the claims.
The Council took the unusual step of applying for costs which it said were over £117,000, and which the claimant was ordered to pay subject to a detailed assessment.
Ely Chambers has reported that this is a record level of costs awarded against a claimant in an employment tribunal claim. Unsurprisingly he is appealing.
