Damien Grant on ACC compo for breach

NZ Herald

Damien Grant actually talks sense on the issue of compensation for the pathethic media beatup of Bronwyn Pullar’s lapse of ethics. She is no whistle blower. ACC should deduct the cost of the compo from her payouts over time…I think she should get the bill.

The ACC is getting some additional free publicity over its offer of $250 compensation to weeping invalids who are meant to have had their privacy breached when Bronwyn Pullar was inadvertently emailed their names.

Sure, that was a blooper, but in a world where people post pictures of their genitals on Facebook, the idea you are entitled to compensation because your name is in a spreadsheet, that no one you know saw, is pathetic.
