Sacked AFR boss sues Fairfax

Former AFR boss Michael Gill has taken legal action over his dismissal from Fairfax Media, reports today’s The Australian.

The company got rid of Gill in March last year, replacing him with Brett Clegg.

Days before his departure, Mumbrella editor Tim Burrowes put the rumour to Gill who described it as “nonsense” at the time.

According to The Australian, Gill claims that he suffered from unlawful age discrimination.

Fairfax Media said that it wouldn’t be commenting on the claim.
