Old Mutual settles in racism case

Legal representatives of the SA Trade and Allied Workers Union and Old Mutual have reached an out of court settlement regarding racist slurs against an employee. The union brought the case on behalf of Xolile Finca against Old Mutual and a female employee who made racist remarks against Finca. In April, a judge found that the company had failed to take proper steps to prevent racism at the workplace. In a joint statement by the parties, Old Mutual says it has agreed to pay Finca 150-thousand rands in settlement of any damages he may have suffered. Old Mutual will also pay the union’s legal costs.
