    McAuley v Auto Alloys Foundry Ltd and Taylor [1994] IT/62824/93 (0 other reports)

An Irishman who was subjected to repeated anti-Irish remarks by his supervisor and other colleagues which led to him seeking medical attention for stress, and who was then dismissed because he did not "fit in", was unlawfully discriminated against, rules a Nottingham industrial tribunal (Chair: J M Coulson) in McAuley v Auto Alloys Foundry Ltd and Taylor. It awards almost £6,000 compensation, including £2,500 for injury to feelings.
