A distressed client was referred to Howells Solicitors, through Civil Legal Advice, due to a claim of a breach of employment law. The client was seeking support due to racial discrimination she had been subjected too at the hands of Welsh housing association Pobl Group Ltd.
Theresa Georges attended an equality and diversity training session along with her colleagues at the instruction of her employers. There she was subjected to inappropriate behaviour at the hands of both the trainer and colleagues, which left Theresa feeling offended and victimised.
The trainer of the session wrote racist words on a flipchart and encouraged the team of 16 employees to shout out derogatory words that came to mind.
