Victim of sexual discrimination and constructive dismissal to receive payout
A former employee of Harley Davidson who resigned from her £38,000-a-year marketing position is set to receive a payout, the Oxford Mail reports.
Christelle Cronk won her claim of sexual discrimination and constructive dismissal at a hearing in October last year. A further tribunal scheduled for later this week will decide how much money she will receive.
The 35-year-old claimed that she had left her role because she had been marginalised by the firm after returning to work following the birth of her son.
Now pregnant with her second child, Ms Cronk is claiming for lost earnings until July 2009.
There is dispute among the parties, with Harley Davidson claiming that, prior to leaving her job, Ms Cronk had asked to work a three-day week. She, on the other hand, says she would have been prepared to work four days a week.
Established in 1903, Harley Davidson is a manufacturer of motorbikes.
