Monkey rights

One of Britain's biggest breweries stands accused of condoning racism after a black pub worker was sacked when his manager nicknamed him 'Sooty'.
Despite regularly calling Joel Perry 'the black man' at the Royal Oak pub in Gloucester, Janet Wolszczak has kept her job at another of the Greene King's Hungry Horse chain's sites.
Mrs Wolszczak would tell Mr Perry to stand underneath the light when she was talking to him so that she could see him and when he complained he was falsely accused with stealing drinks.

During a disciplinary process, the abuse was described as 'banter' before Mr Perry was told to leave his job.
A panel at Bristol Employment Tribunal found Greene King guilty of racial harassment, direct racial discrimination and victimisation. Greene King settled Mr Perry's claim for compensation out of court after a damning tribunal judgment.
