I felt like a prostitute
An accountant who claims she was made to feel 'like a prostitute' by her bosses is suing a top City firm for £40million in a record race discrimination claim.
Romanian Mihaela Popa says she suffered a string of racist and sexual jibes while working at accountancy giant PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Miss Popa, 31, claims that a colleague told her 'Eastern Europeans are whores' and use to refer to her as 'Mihaela and porn'.
She was not offered a partnership, and now she is making a racialist sexist related claim. In the British court she will need very firm evidence and I really think that the claim will be divided by 100 even if she wins the case as the claim is very excessive?
What I ask is should such claims of such hugh amounts be even considered as a punishment for a business due to its employee's sexually or racial harassing a fellow employee? Surely claims should be made against the people that allegedly offended her.
How the hell can the chief executives of a company keep an eye on all their staff to stop such harassment? It's not fair to the companies that they have to be in control of the un moral action of some of the staff. Yes they should try to stop and when they find such going on to fire or suspend the offenders according to proof and evidence.
