A 35-year-old young man was cursed by his British co-workers with the K-word. Unconfirmed reports say that he was annoyed by the person who humiliated him in such a way, which is why he sought legal advice and made a case against the person.
The court ruled in favor of the plaintiff and ordered that the plaintiff should be compensated with R1 million.
The lawsuit has provoked widespread reaction in Britain, and political observers believe it will not happen again soon that a white man from South Africa is cursed with the strange word.
Observers say it is very clear that the person who committed the crime has no idea who lives in South Africa.
Wayne Hoch, who immigrated to England at the age of 18, told The Mail: “I’m so relieved. It feels like I have a new life now. ”
This comes after Hoch, a steelworker, was humiliated in his workplace because he hails from South Africa. His colleagues called him an “immigrant,” and even called the k-word, even though he was white.
They also manipulated photos to put his face on the body of a skinny black kid and wrote: “Donate £ 1 a month to save this poor kid,” reports
Another ridiculous image was made of him standing next to a black woman carrying a child. The caption reads: “Congratulations, Wayne, on the newborn.”
The owner of the firm Thor Atkinson Steel Fabrications was apparently one of the bullies who scoffed at Hoch and called names.
He is apparently more called a “f **** n k **** r” than by his name.
Hoch resigned and approached the appeals tribunal. Here, Hoch presented footage he had made with his cellphone. It can be heard how a colleague even refuses to make him coffee because he is a “foreigner”.
Judge Bernard Hodgson explained in his ruling that £ 22,000 (more than R400,000) of the total amount was allocated to the claim for racial harassment, and that a number of factors influenced this decision.
“First, the nature of the comment itself, secondly, the scope and length of the comment period; third, the fact that the owner of the business was complicit in and participated in the behavior, and fourthly, the impact of the behavior on the mental health of the plaintiff, “Hodgson told the Westmorland Gazette.
Hoch said the harassment at work almost drove him to suicide.
“I want to encourage others not to tolerate bullying or verbal racial abuse at work. I almost ended my life because of the stress and anxiety it caused me, ”Hoch told In Cumbria.
Hoch currently resides in Cumbria, a North West England district.
