Flynn vows to take helm again


FLYNN & ROTHWELL founder Brian Flynn has settled his unfair dismissal claim against consultant De Leuw Rothwell but vowed to regain control of the company he established in 1982.

Flynn said: 'I cannot comment on the settlement but I remain the largest shareholder and wish to get back the company I founded.'

The dispute centred on whether Flynn had full employee rights when he was dismissed in May 1998. He claimed he did because he was a director of transport for consultant De Leuw Chadwick, which Flynn & Rothwell acquired in 1993.

The directors of De Leuw Rothwell argued that Flynn was still classed as a partner until March 1997 when the Flynn & Rothwell partnership was dissolved (NCE 3 December). Currently a worker must have two years service to be considered a full employee.

De Leuw Rothwell chairman Peter Treadgold told NCE: 'I find it strange that Brian made these comments. He said to one of our directors that he would be happy to receive an offer for his shares.'
