A new study has revealed that at least 25% of workers in Scotland have witnessed some sort of gender bias in the workplace according to a poll from The Scotsman.


A prison guard has won his unfair dismissal case after he was sacked for allegedly grabbing the neck of an inmate who was acting aggressively and demanding second dinner helpings.

Ross Callachan has been awarded just under £7,000 and been reinstated as a prison officer following the claim from HMP Glenochil in Clackmannanshire that he became aggressive towards prisoners during food service.

Mr Callachan, who had served for nine years as a prison guard, told the court that he became concerned when an inmate began acting aggressively towards himself and other prisoners. When he became worried that he might be physically assaulted, he took direct action and removed the prisoner from the area.

The Scottish Prison Service (SPS) claimed Mr Callachan used excessive force and was therefore dismissed, however, employment judge Mary Kearns found in favour of the Mr Callachan and ordered his re-engagement as a prison officer at HMP Perth as well as awarding him £6,989.
