The Sunday Times reports that the BBC has "quietly" paid out more than £3m (from the licence fee) to its staff - including over £1m to a single individual - in an attempt to avoid Samira Ahmed-style employment tribunals. Many of the payouts have been "modest payments" of over £5-10k, but others have been in six figures. Apparently, around 50 further cases remain unresolved, including grievance cases involving Naga Munchetty, Rachel Burden and Louise Minchin. Money, money, money, must be funny, in a £3.83 billion licence fee-funded world.
