DO YOU HAVE A DISCRIMINATION STORY, OR HAVE YOU BEEN THE VICTIM OF DISCRIMINATION AT WORK?

Jade Garner contacted Talk to the Press because she was bullied out of her job as a shot girl at Yates branches in Essex. Jade wanted to share a discrimination story to expose the wrongdoing and also help stamp out the abhorrent culture.

The mum-of-two had seen cruel messages from the bosses at her recruitment agency on Facebook saying she was “too fat for our venues” and that shot girls must be a seven out of ten in terms of looks.

Understandably upset, Jade wanted to speak out against the unfair policy and mean comments.

She contacted Talk to the Press by filling out  a story form on our website.

Reporter Scarlet Howes telephoned Jade within 24 hours and was shocked by her experience.

She believed that Talk to the Press could help Jade tell her story and hold her bosses to account for their terrible hiring policy.

AFTER CONTACTING TALK TO THE PRESS WITH A DISCRIMINATION STORY

Scarlet conducted an interview with Jade and received the screenshots of the messages as proof. She then approached Jade’s bosses to give them an opportunity to comment on Jade’s claims (a legal requirement that we take care of so you don’t have to worry).

Scarlet arranged for Jade’s story to be printed in The Sun for a substantial fee.

The newspaper arranged for a photographer to take lovely pictures of Jade. Finally, Scarlet called Jade to give her a full read-back of the copy to ensure she was happy with everything that was written.

The story appeared on page nine in the paper. It was soon picked up by other publications and appeared on The Mirror Online, the Mail Online, and Daily Star.

Scarlet ensured that Jade received payment for each time a publication printed her story.

Although nothing can make up for how Jade was treated, she did receive a bumper fee and, most importantly, got the chance to get her side of the story across and expose the superficial and insensitive behaviour of her bosses.

As a result of the story, Yates confirmed that they no longer used Jade’s recruitment agency. Therefore, going public with her story had a positive effect – hopefully no other woman will be told she is not good looking enough to sell shots in a Yates branch. Jade, you are a hero!
