Annabel Karmel, the celebrity children’s chef, only hired “good-looking men” and fired an employee 20 years her junior after he rejected her sexual advances, an employment tribunal heard.
Mrs Karmel, 57, the bestselling author dubbed the “Delia Smith” of children’s food, allegedly wore provocative clothing and made inappropriate sexual comments to her former sales director Mark Salter.
Mr Salter, 39, said that because he resisted the married mother-of-three’s suggestive behaviour he was sacked in July last year, just four months after taking charge of sales for the company that handles Mrs Karmel’s business
What’s interesting about it is that while Karmel’s name was being protected the case went on. As soon as the judge said that she could be named, it was settled.
Read into that whatever one might wish but it is interesting….
