The spin cycle around professional spinners M+C Partners is gathering speed. The small PR firm is currently facing a court action from Asher Moses, a former executive with the company, for unfair dismissal. In response to his claim -- that he was sacked after he was diagnosed with depression and that the company is trying to avoid paying out his equity entitlements -- M+C Partners filed a defence with the court saying that his dismissal was related to being affected by cannabis while at work and not showing up in required hours.

The battle has been played out partly in the media, as well as the courts, with a piece in the Australian Financial Review's Rear Window column last week prompting an internal email at M+C to "correct" some parts of the column.
