A Sheffield woman has been successful in bringing her former employer to justice over sexual and racial harassment claims. The employment tribunal saw Mrs Maryam Mashayekhi win her case against her previous manager, Christopher Storey of George Plus One Ltd.
Mr Storey was found to have engaged in inappropriate conduct relating to Mrs Mashayekhi’s sex and race during her employment at the hair salon. Mrs Maryam Mashayekhi has stated that she felt humiliated and her confidence was diminished during her time working for Mr Storey.
Speaking of the tribunal result, Mrs Mashayeki said “I am very pleased with the result. I would like to thank my husband for his support throughout this ordeal, my solicitor Scott Sim and the tribunal for bringing me justice.”
The Employment Tribunal found that Christopher Storey had subjected Maryam Mashayekhi to sexual harassment and racial discrimination before unfairly dismissing the trainee hairdresser. A remedies hearing will take place at a future date to determine the compensation awarded to Mrs Mashayekhi.
Mrs Mashayekhi’s Solicitor, Scott Sim of Howells Solicitors said “We are very happy with the result of this tribunal. Mrs Mashayekhi was found to be subjected to behaviour that is wholly unacceptable in any work place and we are pleased that justice has been achieved.”
