Former journalist and PR executive Asher Moses is currently fighting a Fair Work court case after, he says, he was sacked and frozen out of a business he helped start after taking time off for "mental wellbeing".

Moses, formerly a successful and award-winning technology journalist for The Sydney Morning Herald, joined the M+C Partners PR firm in 2014, where he worked until, he says in court papers, he was sacked in June this year while still dealing with diagnosed mental health conditions stemming from his father's death. He says he was shut out of business decisions and was not allowed to be involved in the same high-level planning and decision-making he had been prior to his leave.
