Brit waitress given PS59k payout in breast-groping boss case!July 12th, 2008 - 5:12 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 12 (ANI): A British waitress who was sacked by text after complaining that her drunken boss had groped her breasts, has been given 59,000 pounds as compensation.
Jane Price, 35, was happy to oblige when other restaurant staff asked for a glimpse of her surgically enhanced chest, an employment tribunal heard.
But her manager saw her apparent lack of inhibitions as an excuse to force her on to a sofa and put his hands up her top while trying to kiss her.
When she complained to the owner of the restaurant, he sacked the waitress by text message, reports the Mirror.
Price was groped by her boss Peter Tunney after he learned she had had breast enhancement surgery.
She told the tribunal she was devastated when she complained to restaurant owner Alex Psaras - Tunney’’s brother-in-law - and was sacked by text two days later.
The message read: I think it is best you don”t come back to work. I didn”t like the way you conducted the situation. It left a bad feeling.
Price said: “I wanted justice. I”ve no idea why Mr Tunney went for my boobs - they”re not that big. I couldn”t believe it when I got that text. It ruined my life.” (ANI)
