The Daily Post (27 Oct, p8) reported that Anthony Madume was employed as an assessment officer in the city's revenue and benefits section in 1989.
Mr Madume claims he was ostracised by colleagues, was excluded from social events and that he received anonymous hate mail, which his line manager, Frank Lamb, failed to investigate.
Mr Madume said he had kept a picture of his family on his desk and that Mr Lamb had substituted it with one of a white girl and when challenged, the manager said it was done as a joke.
In August 1997, he secured a trial position in the community development department. Mr Madume claims his manager, Alison O'Shaughnessey, racially discriminated against him.
His posting was terminated in September 1997, again with suggestions that he was abusive and confrontational. Mr Madume is claiming racial discrimination against Liverpool City Council and five managers. The hearing continues.
