Former Mazars director loses discrimination case

FORMER MAZARS DIRECTOR Paramjit Aurora has lost his claim of racial and religious discrimination and unfair dismissal against the firm.

A British national of Indian heritage and a Sikh, Mr Aurora was made redundant from Mazars’ corporate finance team in 2009.

He joined the firm’s London office in mid-2007 and was promoted in 2008, but argued his career development was restricted due to unfair discrimination.

Mazars maintained his dismissal was part of a raft of economic-crisis related redundancies, saying it was “fair”.

The case was heard at the East London Employment tribunal over two weeks in October, and the judge returned his verdict today, saying the claims were “not well founded”.
