Woman gets go-ahead to make sex discrimination claim
A woman who alleges that she was the victim of sex discrimination in her former job has won the right to make a claim.
Sarah Hawley suggests she was sexually harassed at work by a married man and was subsequently sacked for raising a complaint, Stoke and Staffordshire paper the Sentinel reports.
The 32-year-old was employed at Areva T&D UK - a firm with roots tracing back to 1878.
In a new development, she has been told she can proceed with her claim of discrimination, harassment and unfair dismissal.
Commenting on her colleague's actions, she remarked: "He would telephone me and use his position as an acting team member to come into my office.
"It all became too much and I made a complaint to the management."
The firm denies the charges and maintains Ms Hawley lost her job because she was sending excessive email messages while she was at work.
