Bullying claim in job tribunal

Have your say

A SEX swap traffic warden who claims bullying from colleagues forced her to quit her job has taken her case to an employment tribunal in Edinburgh claiming constructive dismissal.

Jan Irvine alleges that after the operation to make her a woman, female colleagues made cruel jokes about her voice and said they would “run out screaming” of the ladies’ toilets if she used them.

Earlier this year, the 58-year-old lost her case for unfair dismissal on the grounds of sex discrimination.

The ongoing legal battle is doubly embarrassing for Lothian and Borders because the force earlier paraded Ms Irvine as an example of their commitment to equality.
