Office worker awarded $10,000 after boss constantly farted in her direction.
UK - A Bullied office worker has been awarded $10,000 after her boss
raised his right buttock from his chair and broke wind in her
direction. Humiliated mother-of-three Theresa Bailey, 43, was the only
woman on a sales team where "laddish" behaviour made her life a misery,
and continued despite complains to senior managers. After she objected
to sexist banter a beach ball was thrown at her head - and when she had
problems working her computer was ordered to wear a badge saying "I'm
simple". Now an employment tribunal has ruled that Mrs Bailey was
sexually discriminated against while working for direct marketing firm
Selectabase, in Deal, Kent, and awarded her $10,000.
