Adam’s Story

Adam was a lecturer at a London university. His employers forced on him a workload over and above what was acceptable according to the university’s own standards for workload management. In contrast, white colleagues were given a substantially lighter workload and told that they should not take on more.

After his objections met with resistance from line managers, Adam lodged a formal grievance. However instead of taking it seriously he was subjected to disciplinary proceedings, leaving him with little choice but to seek legal advice. IHRC Legal advised Adam to file a claim for indirect discrimination and victimisation.

The university in question chose to settle the case before the final tribunal hearing. Adam received a substantial financial payment, as well as a number of non-financial remedies.
