UPS BEING PINPOINTED FOR RACIAL DISCRIMINATION

April 14, 2013

By RealBdotcom

Clive Henry described a campaign of work intimidation and excessive work demands which he said was deliberate to force him out of his job in January 2008. (read Clive Henry Vs UPS Ltd – Race Discrimination Case pending date in the Court of Appeal)

I had an 11-year working span. In that time I never received any disciplinary action” said Henry, who said he was the only black employee in the department at the time.

Prior to the PIP, Henry said he was given greater responsibility, even being asked to supervise the merge of all the Lynx Courier accounts in his department by a previous manager (dubbed ‘Manager A’ in his tribunal documents).

However, Henry said just three months after a new manager took over his department in 2008, he was placed on a PIP, which he says was never authorised by Human Resources.

Henry also claimed he was shouted at and given a written warning because he failed to meet new sales targets which he disputes.

He said: “My previous year’s figures were very good. Why would (Manager A) ask me to supervise a major project of merging the two companies if I was the lowest performer in the department?”

Henry said he “was signed off with occupational stress in January 2009 because of these events.”

Henry claimed he was forced to resign from UPS in March 2010, and decided to take the company to a race discrimination tribunal. His case was dismissed last March.’
