YWCA settles row with former chief

An employment tribunal case involving the YWCA and its former chief executive has been averted after the two sides reached an agreement.

A brief joint statement from Deborah Annetts and the charity said the pair had settled their differences.

"Deborah Annetts and the YWCA are pleased to announce that they have resolved their differences amicably," the statement said. "No further comment will be made."

Annetts filed an employment tribunal claim on leaving the YWCA after three months in charge (Third Sector, 30 January). She is believed to have disagreed with trustees over the future direction of the charity.

The move comes after the YWCA had to pay out more than £8,000 in damages to former employee Fatima Roberts when an employment tribunal found that the charity had racially discriminated against her (Third Sector, 9 January).
