Firm thought worker would accept huge workloads & no promotions. It cost them £96k

An ex-employee has won nearly £100,000 after bosses were found to have overlooked her for promotions because of her age.

An employment tribunal found that Rachel Sunderland, a designer at Superdry, was denied multiple chances at career progression in favour of less experienced colleagues.
