Is Patrick Evershed, the famous 67-year-old fund manager who left New Star Asset Management suddenly late last year, addicted to employment tribunals?
News that he is claiming constructive dismissal against his former firm reminds those in the City with long(ish) memories that he has been here before.
Seven years ago, following his shock departure from Rathbones, he told Citywire: "I certainly didn’t want to leave. I wanted to stay, but I just felt I couldn’t stand it any more. I’ve declared myself to be constructively dismissed. I’m terribly upset and mortified."
He then elaborated: "I’ve been making frequent complaints for three years."
How very prescient!
