Going to Court may seem a solution, but are there any winners in this game?
Anu finds a welcome on her first day with her new employer Novus Premier Group. But relations with her new boss , Peggy Allen, get off to a bad start and then the company begins to suspect that she is leaking sensitive information to her trade union. When she is switched to a new role and asked to wear a uniform by Beverley , the company’s HR Director, Anu goes on long-term sick leave and is eventually invited to take voluntary redundancy. Peggy finds that she is being taken to an employment tribunal accused of racial discrimination and Anu refuses to take advice from her union to accept a settlement or the offer of mediation. In the tribunal case that follows both parties begin to believe that they have got things wrong and have deep regrets.
