Celebrity chef goes from frying pan into fire

12 May 2011

From Max Mosley to Andrew Marr, debate rages about the extent to which famous people should be able to use court orders to prevent their dirty laundry being aired in public.

Now there are reports that a well-known celebrity chef has obtained a gagging order to prevent details of employment tribunal proceedings against him by two former employees being published in the press.

A ‘restricted reporting order’ (as employment tribunals like to call them) can be applied for by either party in a case involving allegations of sexual misconduct, or by the claimant in a disability discrimination case, and prevents the parties to proceedings being named in the press. Unlike the so called “super injunction”, restricted reporting orders are not normally controversial, as they cease to have effect once the case has been determined by the Employment Tribunal. So for those who do not watch celebrity chef programmes and so do not already know how they behave, the full story could still be published once judgment is given.
