A special needs teacher in Northern Ireland who says she was discriminated against because of her sexuality accepted a settlement of PS15,000, the equivalent of $22,000.
The unidentified 37-year-old teacher said that when she first began to work in the school, the principal used sexual
innuendo in his conversations with her, according to BBC News. However, upon discovering she is a lesbian, her school's principal and vice principal started to harass and bully her, including one instance in which she was reportedly moved into a classroom closer to the road because the principal said he hoped her "next move would be out the gate."
The South Eastern Education and Library Board agreed to pay her the settlement without any admission of liability.
