Oracle loses £100,000 sex discrimination case

An executive at software giant Oracle has been awarded almost £100,000 in compensation after exposing a sexist “boys’ club” culture at the firm.

Karen Carlucci, 38, sued the company for sexual discrimination and unfair dismissal.

She told the employment tribunal that her former boss sent her a sexist e-mail and had an “inappropriate” calendar with naked women on his desk.

Oracle is to appeal.
