The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is known for having slightly unusual methods for paying its staff. For some time the formula for paying barristers who represent the CPS has been based on a belief that it takes only a few seconds to read a document. Not unreasonably, not a small number of barristers have disagreed with this formula.
Similarly, one young CPS lawyer, who reports having just received one of his first pay cheques only for it to immediately bounce when he sought to bank it, is similarly concerned about the CPS’s somewhat wayward payment techniques. Shurely shome mishtake.
