|Clive Henry Accuses UPS of Racial Discrimination|
Is “Brown” having a problem with a “Black?” That seems to be what Clive Henry, a black Briton, is saying in his discrimination lawsuit against UPS Ltd. Here is a petition his has put up on Facebook. We have reached out to UPS to get a statement and haven’t heard back from them yet. We are still sifting through the lawsuit and will update this post shortly.
Clive Henry Vs UPS Ltd – Race Discrimination Case
I worked at UPS Ltd for 11 years, with 100% attendance for sevenyears. I had NEVER received any disciplinary action before.
In January 2008 I was asked by Manager A to supervise the merge of allthe Lynx Courier accounts in our department.
In July 2008 Manager B who was a director at Lynx couriers became my manager.
In October 2008 I was placed on a Performance Improvement Plan (PIP)which was never authorised by HR.
I hit the £3000 department monthly target. This was raised to £4000the next month. I was shouted at and given a written warning onfailing this target. I was also given a smudged warning letter. I wassigned off with occupational stress because of these events.
The warning was revoked after my appeal but I was advised in writingthat I would be placed back on the PIP.
I emailed HR to escalate to the corporate office. I was quicklycontacted by HR to arrange an emergency meeting at this point. UPS HRand management were trying to cover this up.
In that meeting I was told to ignore being placed back on thePerformance Improvement Plan. At this point I raised a grievance. Iagain asked for the corporate office details but was given a false HRcontact.
The Race Discrimination Tribunal hearing was March 23, 2010. Irepresented myself as I thought it was an open and closed case. Iresigned from UPS on March 11, 2010.
I was the only Black male and the ONLY person EVER to be placed on a PIP.
UPS are an official supporter for the 2012 Olympics and an equalopportunities employer.
I am fighting an appeal after the judge dismissed the case in aperverse way by removing vital information in his biased judgmentreasons.
The case is now pending a date at the Court of Appeal in London andhas been accepted for investigation by The European Commission forHuman Rights in Belgium.
