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The warning was revoked after my appeal but I was advised in writingthat I would be placed back on the PIP.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.
