Tribunal finds GcMaf boss guilty of sex discrimination

It heard he liked that she had worn red lipstick, heels and a dress to her interview and 'only employed beautiful women'.

The panel found remarks made by Mr Noakes, who is standing in the St Peter Port North by-election, to be inappropriate and said it constituted an 'intimidating, hostile and humiliating working environment' for Lucia Pagliarone.

She was awarded £10,500 for her claim of sex discrimination.

However, the tribunal dismissed her case for unfair dismissal on the grounds that there was not sufficient evidence.

'Red lipstick, heels, good; tattoos, do not approve; wearing a dress excellent'

Lucia Pagliarone said she found sexist notes written on her CV

The tribunal decision also called it 'breathtaking' that Immuno Biotech, even though it was a small company, had no policies or procedures staff could refer to given the products it dealt with.
