FIVE pays out over discrimination claim

Channel Five is reported to have reached a settlement in the discrimination case brought against the broadcaster by veteran presenter Selina Scott. While Five has maintained that details of the deal are confidential, it is understood that Scott is to receive around £250,000 to compensate her after Five decided to offer the job of being Natasha Kaplinski’s maternity cover to younger presenters. To secure this level of settlement Scott must have put forward a persuasive argument that shows age was the determining factor behind the decision to choose other presenters ahead of herself.
