The High Court has barred international audit firm KPMG Advisory Services from conducting disciplinary proceedings against one of its senior employees using information sourced from her personal mobile telephone.
Gloria Jepkurui will submit to the internal disciplinary mechanism but the dossier that was obtained from her telephone must be returned to her and will be expunged from her work records. She is at liberty to use the information during the proceedings.
Justice Monica Mbaru directed the firm to furnish her, in writing, with allegations of misconduct and impropriety, to facilitate her preparation of a reasonable defence. She should be accorded a conducive work environment until her case is concluded, the Judge said in her ruling.
