Fearon welcomes tribunal award
Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has welcomed an employment tribunal decision to award £35000 to a woman who took a sexual harassment case against her employer.
The party’s spokesperson on equality was commenting after the Fair Employment Tribunal made the award to Natasha McCullough from Belfast.
“This decision is welcome for the claimant, but should also encourage those affected by harassment or discrimination to speak out,” Megan Fearon commented.
“It should also serve as a reminder to employers to ensure, not just that they have appropriate policies ad practices in place to protect their staff.”
