The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) is understood to have paid over £3,000 to its former librarian in settlement of a claim of unfair dismissal.
Librarian Kathy Crilley had worked three days a week for the past two and a half years at the SFO's library on a casual basis. When the position was made permanent, it is understood that the SFO advertised the job internally. Crilley, as a casual worker, was not entitled to apply for it.
The SFO agreed to settle at the end of July, shortly before the industrial tribunal case was listed to be heard.
Crilley now works part-time at West End firm Jeffrey Green Russell and is applying to do an MSc at City University. Neither Crilley nor the SFO would comment on the case, due to a confidentiality agreement.
