‘Use­less bitch’ rant laun­dry boss is taken to the clean­ers

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN ENGLISH laun­dry boss who bul­lied his pretty man­ager­ess be­cause she wasn’t Pol­ish has been or­dered to pay her £6,000 com­pen­sa­tion.

A tri­bunal heard Nick James swore and raged at Claire Pitman and de­scribed her as a “use­less English bitch”.

The blonde recorded one of his out­bursts against her on a mo­bile phone and said he only ranted at his English staff.

The Ex­eter em­ploy­ment tri­bunal heard that James, who is in his 50s, called her “f***ing use­less” and told her “don’t talk to f***ing cus­tomers”.

He also ac­cused Miss Pitman, in her 20s, of try­ing to ruin his busi­ness which he called a “pro­fes­sional f***ing or­gan­i­sa­tion”.

She al­leged that he also called her a “use­less c***” for los­ing a credit card – later found with his child.

The tri­bunal heard that he did not shout at for­eign work­ers – which in­cluded mostly Poles.

James, who owns Har­lequin Valet in Devon, was also heard say­ing: “She has to go. I can’t have that bitch ru­in­ing my busi­ness.”

Miss Pitman was given the pay­out by the tri­bunal af­ter she won her claim for un­fair dis­missal.
