Woman tells tri­bunal she was dubbed ‘Su­gar t*ts’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PREG­NANT worker suf­fered a daily bar­rage of sex­ual com­ments about her breasts, a tri­bunal has been told.

The blonde woman was told by one male col­league to “get your boobs out”, and called her “su­gar tits”.

She claims she was also asked by the man to “suck my c**k”, and says he also told her FIFO – “fit in or f*** off”.

The woman, who is in her 20s, claimed the of­fice “was like a play­ground” with a lot of “ban­ter and pranks”.

She said pa­per balls wrapped in tape were hurled around the of­fice and bounced off walls and win­dows.

The Ex­eter tri­bunal judge made a re­port­ing re­stric­tion or­der which has banned the nam­ing off the peo­ple in­volved and the com­pany and its ac­tiv­i­ties be­cause of the sex­ual al­le­ga­tions.

The woman, who is claim­ing sex­ual dis­crim­i­na­tion, said: “I did not want to ap­pear a prude. The whole ex­pe­ri­ence was very up­set­ting.”

The Devon woman said she was wor­ried about what to wear at work for com­ments that were made about “her legs, breasts and other parts of my body”.

She claims she was sub­jected to daily abuse. The tri­bunal con­tin­ues.
