每日英語跟讀 Ep.K222: About the UK - Former Receptionist Gets £23,000 After Being Excluded From Pizza Parties
Malgorzata Lewicka was a former receptionist at Harwell, the Ford car dealership in UK.
Managers at the car dealership conducted office parties where they asked the staff members to choose a takeaway food that they would like to order every month. It included pizza and other fast food choices. Lewicka said to the tribunal that she was neither asked nor invited.
She revealed that in March 2018, she accused a staff member of sexual discrimination, after which her colleagues started excluding her.
Hartwell claimed that Lewicka was not involved in the parties because she worked part-time and wound up at 1 p.m. But the tribunal declared that it was not an excuse.
The judge ruled Lewicka’s exclusion at her former workplace to be a form of sexual discrimination. She was subsequently awarded £23,079. This included compensation for injury to her feelings as well as loss of earnings.
Banksy shows off his British seaside ’spraycation’ 班克西炫耀他的英國海邊「噴漆渡假」
Banksy, Britain’s most famous street artist, on Friday confirmed what many had already suspected － that he is indeed the author of a number of works that have appeared recently in British seaside towns.
An Instagram video clip, just over three minutes long and entitled "A Great British Spraycation", shows the elusive artist taking a summer road trip in a beat-up camper van with cans of spray paint stashed in a cooler.
In one work on the concrete sea-defence wall of a British beach, a rat lounges in a deckchair, sipping a cocktail.
In another, sticking to the seaside theme, a mechanical claw dangles above a public bench － as if anyone who sits there is about to be plucked up like a prize in an arcade game.
