4 claims for race discrimination
3 claims for sex discrimination, breach of contract, breach of fixed term regulations
2 claims for disability discrimination
1 claim for disability discrimination and unfair dismissal
1 claim for unfair dismissal breach of fixed term worker relations
1 claim for breach of part time worker regulations, breach of contract
1 claim for deduction of wages, sex discrimination

Of these 12 cases were settled and 1 was successfully upheld at an Employment Tribunal. That leaves 6 cases ever lost or withdrawn.

During the last five years there has been 48 workshops on bullying at Birmingham University, and 49 on disability discrimination.

This is really fantastic information, many thanks for pursuing it. What a shame that all these settlements are off the record and require such effort to uncover.

You really have to question the value of the workshops....
