Brady was accused of breaching his contract, court papers say

Oxygen has settled an employment dispute with account executive Chris Brady.

According to court papers, the broker was suing Brady for quitting without serving his six-month notice period. Brady resigned on 26 March, although his contract stated he would have had to serve out a period up until 25 September.

Oxygen wanted an order restraining Brady from breaching his contract and related costs from the dispute.

An Oxygen spokesman said the issue had now been settled but could not comment any further.

Brady was one of the original members of the Leeds office, formed after Oxygen snapped up Smart & Cook and transferred the 30-strong staff in 2006.

Three other original members – Richard Butler, Graeme McIntyre and Keith Florence – all left in January this year. They resigned just months after the tragic death of their former boss, Sean Hicks.
