A Romanian woman, Miheala Popa, 31, was given an unjust reference by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC), after resigning her from the job which paid her £41,000-a-year job as a forensic accountant in November 2006.

She claims that PWC has harmed her career because of the unfair references they gave about her. The panel at the Central London Employment Tribunal has found that the unfair reference by PWC was only one of the instances of persecution.

The panel ruled that, this did not stop her in getting a £66,000-a-year job with bank Credit Suisse, August 2008. The panel also ruled that, they were no way that PWC’s reference stopped Miss Popa obtaining employment. This is simply a case of hurt of feelings on the part of Miss Popa.

Miss Pops claims that, she was discriminated on the basis of her race and she asked for compensation for it. PWC is seeking to costs from Miss Popa for the employment tribunal. The costs for the two trials and other legal actions brought by her are believed to run into six figures.

She had demanded for compensation worth £40 million for hurting feelings and it is believed to be the highest amount ever claimed in such a dispute.
