Settlement over cancer 'bullying'

An executive who claimed he faced "bullying and harassment" after being diagnosed with testicular cancer has reached a settlement with the firm.

Steven Savage, 36, from Finchley, north London, said he was forced out of his 65,000-a-year job at Lafferty Group.

The case was settled before its hearing at the employment tribunal.

Mr Savage claimed he was "ostracised" and "marginalised" by the firm when he returned after an emergency operation. The company had denied the claims.

Following the settlement Mr Savage said: "My wife and I are very happy with the terms of the settlement."

Lafferty Group's chairman Michael Lafferty said: "I am pleased that Mr Savage's claim has been settled and dismissed. We have achieved a satisfactory outcome."

The terms of the settlement have not been revealed.
