This report relates to 1 case(s)

English v Thomas Sanderson Blinds Ltd


Mr English complained to an employment tribunal that, for a number of years, his work colleagues had subjected him to 'banter' to the effect that he was homosexual. He claimed this course of conduct started when a manager discovered that he (a) had attended boarding school and (b) lived in Brighton (the UK city with the largest proportion of gay residents).
