The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has failed in its attempt to secure its legal costs from a former employee who brought claims against it for unfair dismissal and discrimination.
Jessica Été alleged she suffered discrimination because of her race and sex while working at the professional leadership body as a software developer between February and November 2019.
The RPS issued a statement last week in which it described Ms Été's allegations as “entirely vexatious and unfounded.”
Her case against the RPS was due to go to a preliminary hearing on January 25 this year before she withdrew her claims on January 22 having been in discussions with the RPS over a settlement.
When Independent Community Pharmacist asked the RPS last year if it had failed to properly investigate her complaints, it did not respond.
An employment judge dismissed the RPS's application to recover its costs from Ms Été. The RPS said it considered the matter closed.
