Clive Henry Accuses UPS Ltd of Racial Discrimination, Lawsuit Now Pending Before Court of Appeal in London & the European Human Rights Commission in Belgium.
Clive Henry Vs UPS Ltd – Race Discrimination Case
I worked at UPS Ltd for 11 years, with 100% attendance for seven years. I had NEVER received any disciplinary action before.
In January 2008 I was asked by Manager A to supervise the merge of all the 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 £4000 the next month. I was shouted at and given a written warning on failing this target. I was also given a smudged warning letter. I was signed off with occupational stress because of these events.
The warning was revoked after my appeal but I was advised in writing that I would be placed back on the PIP.
I emailed HR to escalate to the corporate office. I was quickly contacted by HR to arrange an emergency meeting at this point. UPS HR and 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. I again asked for the corporate office details but was given a false HR contact.
The Race Discrimination Tribunal hearing was March 23, 2010. I represented myself as I thought it was an open and closed case. I resigned 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 equal opportunities employer.
I am fighting an appeal after the judge dismissed the case in a perverse way by removing vital information in his biased judgment reasons.
The case is now pending a date at the Court of Appeal in London and has been accepted for investigation by The European Commission for Human Rights in Belgium.
