Morrisons staff seeking payout over data leak
Thousands of Morrisons employees have issued demands for compensation over what is believed to be Britain’s biggest ever data security claim. A High Court ruling has given the workers the green light to pursue a group claim against the retailer for failing to prevent the bank, salary and National Insurance details of almost 100,000 members of staff being posted on the internet by an employee with a grudge. Nick McAleenan of JMW Solicitors, who is representing the group, said that the claimants included a number of staff concerned at having “suffered financial loss”.
