If a multinational employer fired you for having diabetes because you would be off sick a lot in the future, what would you do? This is a true story of discrimination in the workplace, one ordinary person against a multinational employer, multinational legal firm, barrister, appeal courts, countries and international courts, in the form of a diary including emails, correspondence, and judgments. A modern day David and Goliath with many twists along the way.
Excerpt from the book:
"Upon entering the Employment Tribunal Courtroom, my overriding impression was that this Courtroom was much bigger than I expected. It could easily have accommodated one hundred people, but probably only had seating for around thirty. There were two long desks, one for the claimant and one for the respondent, each desk had two seats, which were both located in front of the public seating, and one smaller desk and a single seat to the right for a witness, and a slightly raised stage with one long bench and three seats behind for the Tribunal panel.
Mr Davy was already in the Courtroom unpacking and setting up all his materials, and I proceeded to unpack my material, which was considerably less. Quality, not quantity was my first thought, but I also thought that if this is the amount of material to just try and prove one small point, what a waste of paper, time and effort.
After twiddling thumbs for around one minute, the Clerk announced "All rise", and a single door to the left of the Courtroom marked "Private" swung open, and a tall, thin, ever so slightly punkish mid thirties woman swiftly walked through the door with a bundle of documents clutched to her chest, paused and proceeded to sit down in the middle seat behind the long bench on the raised stage. The respondent and I then sat down. It had started."
