Employment Tribunal finds harassment and victimisation in case of woman prevented from speaking Polish at work

24.10.13 |

As reported in the London Evening Standard recently, an Employment Tribunal in Watford found that a woman who had been prevented from speaking Polish while working at her nursery school and whose complaints had not been investigated, had suffered harassment.  The Tribunal also found that letters written to her by her former employer after she had resigned and made a claim against the nursery school, constituted post-dismissal victimisation.  This issue is the subject of two conflicting Employment Appeal Tribunal judgments which are to be heard by the Court of Appeal in November.
