Nestle to compensate an ex manager with 2 million ($2.2 million) as reported by The Tages-Anzeiger.
This was after a Swiss court validated her allegation of workplace abuse.
On Saturday, the newspaper reported that a court in Vaud had given Yasmine Motarjemi the compensation, after a 12-year legal fight.
According to the article, the 67-year-old former who was head of global food safety complained for several years that she felt ridiculed and degraded by Nestle colleagues.
Hence, having suffered such psychological harm, she had to seek for occupational disability pension at age 55.
Motarjemi’s said “My case against Nestle never included monetary issues.
I wanted a court to acknowledge the injustice committed against me.”
However, since they chose not to appeal, the corporation did not verify the amount of compensation.
A Nestle spokesperson said, “We deeply regret the nearly 12 years of court proceedings and desire to put this legal issue to an end.”
The company do not condone harassment and takes such claims very seriously.
Her attorney, Mathilde Bessonnet, said that the award demonstrated that the court acknowledged Motarjemi’s contention .
And also that her employer was solely responsible for the destruction of her career.
“Nestle must reimburse my client for all missed wages from the termination date until retiring,” Bessonnet told the newspaper.
