We present a finite element implementation of a Cosserat elasto-plastic model allowing for non-symmetric stresses and we provide a numerical analysis of the introduced time-incremental algorithm. The model allows the use of standard tools from convex analysis as known from classical Prandtl-Reuss plasticity. We derive the dual stress formulation and show that for vanishing Cosserat couple modulus $\mu_c\to 0$ the classical problem with symmetric stresses is approximated. Our numerical results testify to the robustness of the approximation. Notably, for positive couple modulus $\mu_c>0$ there is no need for a safe-load assumption. For small $\mu_c$ the response is numerically indistinguishable from the classical response.
