£1 Million payout

Police Scotland have paid a former female firearms officer just under £1 million by way of a settlement agreement to end litigation, following an Employment Tribunal decision handed down in September 2021.  The Tribunal had found the Claimant to have been victimised within the workplace after receiving an e-mail saying two female firearms officers should not be deployed together when there were sufficient male staff on duty.  The Tribunal accepted evidence that the culture in parts of armed policing was “horrific” and an “absolute boys’ club.”
