Ex-McCann employee sues organisation for wrongful termination suit
In June, McCann Health terminated the employment of its Global Chief Creative Officer Jeremy Perrott for alleged violations on the firm’s code of conduct. Now, Perrot has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the organisation claiming damages worth more than $25 million. Perrott has charged the agency and parent Interpublic Group with defamation, tortious interference with contract, common law conspiracy and gross negligence.
The case has been filed in a U.S. District Court in Virginia. McCann has requested the court for an extension until December 17 to properly respond.
