British Christian awarded compension after 'racist' letter from halal meat farm

A Christian has been awarded £2,500 compensation after complaining he was targeted by a “racist” email while working at a Birmingham halal meat firm.

Christopher Turton was one of only two white workers at the National Halal Food group in Harborne Road, Edgbaston, and worked alongside up to 300 Muslims.

He had been promoted to National Concessional Manager for the company when the email was sent between fellow employees.

It questioned if Mr Turton had been favoured in landing his new role, asking: "Is it because he is white?" and also pointed out he was not a ‘Muslim brother’.

The tribunal was told that Mr Turton found the email “extremely offensive” and was made to feel alienated. He was off work with stress and eventually resigned.

He took the company to tribunal, seeking compensation for race and religious discrimination.

Tribunal judge Miss Victoria Dean said Mr Turton had found the email racist and offensive and said there had been an injury to his feelings.

She initially awarded him £3,000 but this was reduced by 15 per cent to £2,550 because he had failed to lodge an official grievance to the firm.

A bit unfair to have the company pay for what was said by some of their employees.

Good to see the boot can be on the other foot as regards complaints about discrimination re race and religion.

As for it being unfair for the company to pay out for its employees' bigotry, perhaps it will now be financially motivated to eradicate bigoted employees!

Nice to see that a few muslims now know how the rest of us feel. We have to endure their constant whining about being "offended" o a daily basis.

I'd watch for this man in the news over the next few weeks. Since he has thrown down the gauntlet against Islam, I fear his days may be numbered.
