The CBI has settled legal action taken by the former director general, Tony Danker as he was sacked amid allegations over his behaviour.
Danker and the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) agreed an “undisclosed settlement” after he was sacked in April 2023.
The CBI said that Danker’s conduct “fell short of that expected” of the director general.
The CBI said: “The CBI has today settled legal action brought against the organisation by Tony Danker after his dismissal in April 2023.
“The CBI board has agreed an undisclosed settlement with Mr Danker.
“The CBI board also reiterates that Mr Danker is not associated in any way with the historical allegations reported in the media concerning matters which pre-date his tenure at the CBI and rejects any such association.”
