    Higgins v Belfast City Hospital & Social Services Trust 25 August 1998 FET (0 other reports)

A ward sister who was "put in her place" by a manager just days after the settlement of her claim that the manager had discriminated against her on religious grounds, was unlawfully discriminated against by way of victimisation, rules the Fair Employment Tribunal (Chair: M Davey) in Higgins v Belfast City Hospital & Social Services Trust. It awards compensation of £5,000, all for injury to feelings.

Mary Higgins has been a ward sister at Belfast City Hospital since 1973.
