Heather Mills‘s former nanny has lost her claim of sexual discrimination and constructive dismissal against her.
Sara Trumble, 26, claimed Mills reduced her to tears with the demands she placed on her and forced her to work long hours without any extra pay
The nanny, who was paid £260 a week by Mills to look after her daughter Beatrice, now six, told an employment tribunal she felt she was a hard-working and loyal employee, but in return her former boss took advantage of her.
Ms Trumble, who began working for Mills in April 2004 when she was still married to Sir Paul McCartney, said she handed in her notice in September 2008 after she was relegated to domestic duties after returning from maternity leave.
The three-day hearing at Ashford Employment Tribunal Centre in Kent, which began at the end of March, saw Ms Trumble claim compensation for sex and maternity discrimination, plus constructive dismissal.
However tribunal judge Steven Vowles dismissed the claims in the judgment, which was reserved until Friday.
A spokeswoman for Mills said she was ‘delighted’ with the result.
She said in a statement: “Heather is delighted with the decision of the Employment Tribunal that has dismissed all of Sara Trumble’s claims. Heather was always a very fair and generous employer to Sara and is very pleased that this has been confirmed by Judge Vowles and the Tribunal members unanimously in the judgment.”
