A London Underground manager sacked for sexually harassing a female colleague has been awarded a £14,000 payout after bosses took too long to dismiss him, an employment tribunal has ruled.
Olushola Adenusi, 59, was subject to disciplinary proceedings after he told a woman he wanted to sleep with her and that he could tell she was fit by her body shape.
The customer services manager was sacked for gross misconduct but took legal action against London Underground on the grounds of unfair dismissal.
An employment tribunal found that while the decision to fire him for harassing the woman, known only as C1, was reasonable, the 16-month investigation took so long that it became unfair.
So when do those investigated for kiddie fiddling get compo for the length of time it all takes?
Or doesn’t that work because the Carl Beech victims were in fact innocent?
