"Goddamn Yank" racial abuse, not banter

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The use of the phrase "Goddamn Yank" was racial abuse, rules a Manchester industrial tribunal (Chair: C Porter) in Ruizo v (1) Tesco Stores Ltd and (2) Lea, rejecting management's view that such a phrase was simply workplace banter. It recommends that management should take a more proactive role in encouraging victims of racial abuse to come forward.
