Sports Direct agrees to independent review

Sports Direct has given in to shareholder pressure and agreed to conduct an independent review of its working practices, rather than law firm RPC, which has previously worked with the retailer, carrying it out.

The business said the board made the decision after listening to shareholder feedback at the recent annual general meeting on 7 September.

A statement said RPC will continue to be a “valued legal advisor” to Sports Direct.

The retailer is yet to say who will conduct the review and said it would consult shareholders about its terms and timing.

Sports Direct added that a worker representative to the board would be elected by all staff “directly engaged or employed by Sports Direct”.
