Protestant who claimed ‘intimidation’ when colleagues played ‘anti-British’ songs has claim rejected (via Independent.ie)

A protestant worker who claimed he was “intimidated” out of a Dundalk factory because his colleagues played “anti-British” songs on repeat has had his claim for sectarian harassment rejected.

One song included the lyrics “go home you British bastards”, the Workplace Relations Commission was told.

His former employer told the commission, however, that the worker had an “agenda” and “was never going to accept” the outcome of an internal appeals process.

Glen Weir lodged a complaint under Section 77 of the Employment Equality Act against his former employer, Anord Mardix (Ireland) Ltd of North Link Business Park, Coes Road, Dundalk Co Louth, alleging religious discrimination by way of harassment.
