Spurned boss made me quit

A ROCK singer was forced to quit his day job because a colleague fancied him, a tribunal heard.

Tom Ford, 31, of Duke Street, Henley, claimed Lucy Myers made comments about his appearance and gave him gifts in a bid to win his affection.

But after he rejected her advances and she was promoted, she became “incredibly hostile”.

He claimed that 34-year-old Miss Myers sent him rude messages and eventually he was forced to resign from the Good Shelf Company, a bespoke furniture business in Rotherfield Greys.

Mr Ford is suing the company and Miss Myers for sex discrimination, unfair dismissal and constructive dismissal. The employment tribunal sitting in Reading heard that soon after he started in February 2013, Miss Myers began behaving inappropriately and seemed to enjoy making him feel uncomfortable.
