Cape Town - The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) is expected to continue a case on Thursday between former analyst Dr Sean Muller and Parliament regarding a deputy director of economics post.

Muller alleges he had been overlooked for a promotion, while being more qualified than the candidate who got the job.

He had a PhD, while the successful candidate, also a respondent in the matter, only had a master’s degree. He was the highest performing analyst, he said. 

Muller was shortlisted, interviewed, and underwent psychometric testing. After a six-month-long recruitment process, the position was offered to Seeraj Mohamed.

Muller previously told the commission that while no one had ever approached him to do academic work, others were asked.
