Superdrug in sex discrimination case

Staff
at a Superdrug branch have denied allegations that a female shop assistant was
regularly spanked and groped.

Emma
Evans, who is claiming sex and race discrimination and unfair dismissal against
the company, told an employment tribunal that she was smacked with a leather
belt and groped in a store room in Hammersmith in West London.

She
also claims she was bullied by Asian staff in 2003.

She
told the tribunal that the store’s deputy manager, Jude Anton, encouraged the
behaviour, and that the "loathsome campaign" had forced her out of
her job.
