Scottish Widows faces sex discrimination claim

Scottish
Widows faces a sex discrimination claim after a senior manager allegedly
nominated a female worker as the "most celibate employee of the
year".

According
to the Scotland on Sunday newspaper, Martha MacKenzie claimed the alleged
insult caused her to quit her job. She is now taking Scottish Widows Investment
Partnership to an industrial tribunal claiming constructive dismissal, sex
discrimination and personal injury.

Scottish
Widows denies the allegations.

A
date for the hearing is still to be set.
