Notts Black Partnership discriminated against its boss

“THE former chief executive of a company set up to help black minority communities has succeeded in her claims of sexual and racial discrimination against the group.

Aneela Asim brought the claim against Nottinghamshire Black Partnership and two members, board member Najeeb Nazir and former treasurer Mohammad Aslam – a current Nottingham city councillor.

She says she was discriminated against and harassed once she was appointed to a position of power within the company. An employment tribunal held at Byron House in Maid Marian Way found that Mrs Asim was discriminated against after she submitted two grievances to the board, who did not respond to her claims.

The tribunal also found that Mrs Asim was harassed because of her sex when former treasurer and Nottingham city councillor Mohammad Aslam referred to her as ‘she’ and ‘her’ at board meetings, treating her sometimes as if she wasn’t there.”

    This is an embarrassing and sorry affair for everyone concerned. I think Councillor Aslam’s role now has to be scrutinised by Nottingham City Council. According to their web site, he is a member of the Standards Committee!!

    Interestingly, the NBP website still shows Ms Asim as CEO but carries the names of none of the board members.

    The Casse has been thrown out and rubbished by an appeal judge – read the judgement here http://www.employmentappeals.gov.uk/Public/Upload/09_0332rjfhSBRN.doc
    Najeeb Nazir and Mohammad Aslam are now cleared the appeal judge said the original decision was a farce
    welldone Najeeb Nazir and Mohammad Aslam keep up the good community work you do
