UK: Accountant sacked after accusing boss of ‘mansplaining’ in office dress code row

Article here. Excerpt:

'Zhihui Lu asked her manager Matt Brunton "who was he as a man to be telling her what she can and cannot wear?"

In a "loud and aggressive tirade" the Durham University graduate then asked whether he thought her bra was appropriate and tried to show him her bra strap, a tribunal was told.

The 'completely inappropriate' outburst was just one of a number of incidents of misconduct that led to Miss Lu being fired after just three years at the accounting giant, a panel heard.

After she was given the boot she took them to the tribunal claiming the firm had discriminated against her.

But the panel sided with KPMG and dismissed her claims for unfair dismissal, harassment, and disability and race discrimination entirely.'
