A call centre worker has been awarded more than 22,000 pounds after winning a race and religious discrimination case against a company owned by entrepreneur and Rangers chairman Sir David Murray.
Lipka was awarded 15,000 pounds for injury to his feelings, an additional 3,750 pounds as the company had failed to follow the statutory grievance procedure, and 3,718 pounds in interest.
James Lipka (58), who worked for the Student Loans Company and Rangers Projects from Glasgow-based Response Handling's call centre in Ibrox Stadium, claimed that fellow members of staff had called him "Osama Bin Lipka", a "Mongol" and "Genghis Khan".
The abusive comments at his workplace got worse after the bombings in London on 7 July, 2005, with some of the agents becoming openly hostile towards Muslims, news.Scotsman.com reported. [Link]
