The Web Summit’s Paddy Cosgrave
A “very substantial” payment was made to a female ex-Web Summit employee to settle claims of bullying and harassment against its CEO Paddy Cosgrave, a former director has alleged in High Court proceedings.
Daire Hickey, a fellow co-founder of the successful tech conference, accused Mr Cosgrave of routinely chastising and demeaning staff, particularly women.
It is the third lawsuit relating to disputes between co-founders of the tech event to be filed in the space of just seven weeks.
…A Web Summit spokesperson has described Mr Hickey’s claims as “baseless”.
