Tribunal upholds discrimination claim

An oil-rig supervisor has had his racial harassment claim upheld after he overheard his superior using the ‘n-word’. The supervisor, who is black, made a complaint to his employer after he overheard his Manager say “All I have done is work like a f***ing n*****.”

Despite the Manager apologising, the supervisor brought a complaint after the company chose not to remove the Manager from the business. The tribunal in Hull, East Yorkshire, agreed with the supervisor and awarded him £8,000 in damages.
