CARR VS BLOOMBERG: I Need Your Eyes Friday Afternoon; Joining My Unfair Dismissal Hearing (1)


I essentially only get to put my case for 1.5 hours in the last few hours of the hearing — today on Friday Dec. 10. Approx 2:15-5pm give or take

PLEASE ask the Tribunal and say why you want to listen in: “I’m interested in unfair dismissal / whistleblowing / employment law and the global climate miscarriage of justice” should do it, if true.
