RTE Employee Awarded Compensation for Work Injury

An RTE employee has been awarded €18,500 after he suffered an elbow injury while working on the set of the Saturday Night Show.

The Circuit Civil Court heard that Arthur McMullan (59) of Goatstown, Dublin fell while he was trying to unsnag a curtain that has caused continuous problems on the set. Mr.McMullan fell over a studio floor lamp sustaining his injury elbow in February 2010 and as a result is still suffering from elbow pain, two years later.

An RTE colleague supported his compensation claim stating that the curtain had been an ongoing problem that was not remedied by RTE. Judge Jacqueline Linnane found in favour of the claimant.
