Wins in sex-bias claims

Two employers will have to pay compensation to former employees after losing
sex discrimination cases brought against them.

Kay Swinburne, 32, resigned her £300,000-a-year job with Deutsche Bank after
complaining of offensive comments made by her manager.

She told a London tribunal last year the manager, who has since been
disciplined, referred to women as "hot totty" and suggested she was
having an affair.

A Birmingham tribunal also ruled in favour of a woman after her employer,
the Professional Golfers’ Association, insisted she wore a skirt to work.

Newly appointed Judy Owen, 39, resigned her £28,000-a-year job as a training
manager after being told her smart trouser suit was unacceptable.
