Another reason to hate gingers!

But that doesn't even look like a natural ginger colour...judging by her age shes probably dyed it that colour to hide the grey...very odd and she looks older than 41 to me.

None of the accused appeared at court Be interesting to know their place of origin because they don't sound like Brits . This is not intended to be a racist comment but I find the different standards can be culturally based

(and they should have asked me about the collar and cuffs - cos I could have told them that she was totally shaved with a not inconsiderable number of piercings - you'd never guess to look at her would you....)

Despite the sensationalist headline, she claimed unfair dismissal and sexual harassment, and was compensated accordingly:

She claimed unfair dismissal and sexual harassment against four respondents including Mayflowers Kebabs Ltd - none of whom turned up for the hearing.

Christa Christensen, the tribunal chairman, awarded a total of £17,618 in compensation for lost wages and injury to feelings, which included £9,000 for the sexual harassment.

I am not ginger, but as anyone who's had any dealings with bullies, they will know that they exploit a victim's Achilles heel (in this case, her ginger hair). Now most people would say "Get a life and it's only a joke", but I imagine things must have been bad for her to take disciplinary action. I doubt this case is an example of the compensation culture we live in, but a genuine case of harassment. It's only funny when you're not the victim.

Well said Sgt Pepper, I agree work place bullying for what ever reason should not be acceptable, once it can be amusing, but on an every day basis it is despicable.
