Worker claims he was sacked over Elvis tribute

A
Nissan worker claims he was sacked for singing Elvis songs on the anniversary
of the King’s death.

Production
line worker David Jewers, 37, was suspended from his £26,000-a-year job after
arguing with a boss about singing along to tribute songs playing on the radio.

Jewers
claims that weeks later he was sacked and is now taking the firm to an
employment tribunal alleging unfair dismissal.

According
to reports, Jewers, a part-time crooner on the North East’s nightclub circuit,
had just returned to work after battling with stress and depression.
