  • Group Captain Wendy Williams was passed over for promotion in favour of male colleague who had served three-and-a-half years fewer than her
  • Took MoD to employment tribunal accusing air force of favouring men
  • Tribunal judge ruled she was discriminated against because of her sex
  • Group capt Williams was awarded £560,000 to cover loss of earnings, loss of pension contribution, injury to personal feelings

..

Tribunal judge Miss Victoria Dean announced at a previous hearing that Ms Williams was discriminated against because of her sex.

Now the tribunal has ruled the Ministry of Defence should award her a total of £557,038.

The total includes £204,079 for loss of earnings, £105,585 pension loss and £22,000 for injury to feelings, plus more than £500 interest.

Ms Dean made several recommendations to the MoD in announcing her compensation, including that those involved in promotion of recruitment should receive more training in equality and diversity.

A bill picked up by the taxpayer.

That's some loss of earnings it doesn't say how many years that's covered from. Hopefully it will be invested in a few BTL and boost GDP.

So if a women with slightly less experience then a man gets promoted before all the men should sue.

Surely if they just gave her the promotion now then itd be a bill of about 30K that she lost.

Hope the money brings her misery.

Good for her.

(obviously not clicking on the Daily Hate tho)

Only a fool would think over half a million quid is appropriate.

But as this ruling shows Britain is full of your kind.

The promotion was obviously worth a lot, over say 20 years. Reserve your anger for why that is and should soldiers be getting so much in pension. I've no idea, but you're missing the point.

If you're a female and want to retire early, join the public sector and at the first career setback complain of discrimination, simple as.

Not quite. Make a note of the discrimination and record the events, let time pass by and THEN make a claim. Take the huge payout and retire early!

I think you need to bear in mind that she holds/held a very high rank. With that position comes a healthy pay packet & generous pension. The vast majority of service personnel/soldiers will be on peanuts compared to her.

If you're not a white British Male, earning less than twice the miminum wage, aged between 25 and 35, without kids and want to retire early, join the public sector and at the first career setback complain of discrimination, simple as.
