On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Melissa Coade is joined by employment lawyers James Mattson and Ryan Murphy from Bartier Perry. The national shame in Australia was palpable when a cheating plot involving three Aussie batsmen unravelled on the international stage during the Third Test in South Africa. Cameron Bancroft was busted on the playing field, with television footage capturing his attempts to tamper a cricket ball with sandpaper in March this year. Cricket Australia quickly moved to investigate the incident, resulting in swift disciplinary action against the junior player, along with suspensions for former skipper Steve Smith and Vice-captain Dave Warner. The three were also charged with bringing the game into disrepute. Here, employment lawyers James Mattson and Ryan Murphy talk about how reasonable the penalties against disgraced cricket trio were. They also unpack broader themes raised by the scandal, to show what employers can take away from how Cricket Australia handled the Cape Town Plot in times of crisis.
