Former PlusNet CEO hits back at BT over dismissal
Less than 36 hours after Lee Strafford's departure as CEO of PlusNet, a war of words seems to have broken out between the former CEO and the company's new owner BT according to reports. The Independent is this morning featuring a story on the quarrel and states that Mr Strafford has threatened legal action against BT for his dismissal on grounds of misconduct.
The Independent quotes a source who states that Mr Strafford had been called into a meeting by BT to discuss PlusNet workers' remuneration when he was faced with allegations involving a plan by himself and Mr Comer to start up a new business venture which would be 'to the detriment of PlusNet'. Neil Comer took over the role of Finance Director from Ashok Makanji in November 2005 and left PlusNet on Monday with Mr Strafford.
