Morrisons: £55m payout over 2014 ‘grudge’ leak of payroll data ‘grossly unjust’

Graeme Burton reports:

Morrisons has told the Supreme Court in London that it should not be held either directly or vicariously liable for the 2014 payroll data leak of almost 100,000 employees.

The leak was traced to its senior IT internal auditor Andrew Skelton, who held a grudge against the company following a disciplinary hearing over the use of the company’s postal facilities for sending his private mail. He was jailed for eight years in 2015 for the data leak, but is due to be released in January.
