Sadler's Wells sued for sex discrimination by four managers
By Cahal Milmo for The Independent

The Sadler's Wells theatre, one of the world's leading dance venues, is being sued for sex discrimination by four senior female managers who allege that they unfairly lost their jobs under its new French chief executive.

The women, including the London theatre's administrator, marketing director and head of development, are bringing their claim that they were dismissed by Jean-Luc Choplin because of their sex to an employment tribunal.

They allege that of the six senior management positions at the theatre, the four female holders of the posts were made redundant or forced to step down while the remaining two men were promoted. The theatre denies the claims.
