A man was awarded about $30,000 after he suffered from severe anti-Semitism from his manager.
As we reported earlier, a Jewish man is angry after his manager made a series of extremely offensive and racist comments, according to a new lawsuit filed in the United Kingdom.
The worker said that his boss said he wanted to lock up “Yids” and wore obscene shirts mocking Jewish soccer fans.
Darren Feldman, 33, said that manager Chris Oates mocked him after he invited him to JuJu, a champagne bar in London’s King’s Road.
Oates allegedly spoke of mocking Jewish Tottenham fans by running past their club at White Hart Lane stadium wearing a top with the slogan “IVOR 4 SKIN” printed on the back.
In his statement, Feldman, who is Jewish, said that in his boss’ birthday, the two discussed making a potential business deal with Daniel Sugar, an Apprentice star, and son of former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar.
Oates is alleged to have said: “I’m playing around. Frankly they’re all Yids. I like to lock them all in the building and gas them all.”
Feldman was a 47,500 pound per year construction project manager for private hospital group HCA International.
He is suing the company at The Central London Employment Tribunal for racial and religious discrimination, harassment and constructive dismissal.
U.S. company HCA is the world’s largest private hospital group.
