Ex-postman wins unfair dismissal tribunal
Compensation is set to be awarded to an ex-postman who took Royal Mail to an employment tribunal on the grounds of unfair dismissal.
According to online resource This is Lancashire, Abdul Musa opted for legal action after being fired from his position at the Canterbury Street sorting office in Blackburn five years ago.
Mr Musa told the case heard in Manchester that a "climate of fear" existed at the depot managed by Royal Mail - which employs more than 175,000 people - due to the fact he and some of his colleagues were subjected to race discrimination.
The professional indicated a breach of confidence had taken place because, after raising his concerns with management at the site, details of his complaints were then circulated among other members of staff.
Consequently, it has been ruled his claim for damages is "well founded" and he will discover how much compensation he is to receive next month.
