Sacked Tesco executives have ‘no right to appeal’

Tesco has told several senior executives who were dismissed after its profits were overstated by £263m that they have “no right to appeal” their departures.

The supermarket told lawyers acting for some of the managers that they cannot launch a formal appeal through the company because an ongoing Serious Fraud Office (SFO) probe has rendered it impossible for Tesco to have direct contact with them, according to Sky News.

Last week it emerged that UK managing director Chris Bush, group commercial director Kevin Grace, UK finance director Carl Rogberg, and John Scouler, UK food commercial director, had left Tesco approximately eight weeks after they were asked to step aside amid an investigation into the profit overstatement.

It is understood that at least one of the men had made enquiries through their legal representatives about their right to appeal and was informed by the company that no such appeal could be heard while the SFO investigation was taking place.
