Dominos

A woman from Northern Ireland was awarded Rs 3,78,112 (£4,000) after she sued a Dominos outlet for asking her age at a Domino’s Pizza delivery driver job interview.

The woman, Janice Walsh, said that the interviewer at the Domino’s Pizza franchise in Strabane, County Tyrone, questioned her about her age at the outset of the conversation. She thought she was passed over for the position because of her age and sex, the BBC reported.

Walsh was applied for the position of a delivery driver at a Domino’s outlet in Strabane, County Tyron. She faced discrimination on the basis of her age and gender during interview but the courageous woman did not let it go, instead, she fought against the company and even won the case.

She accused the Strabane franchise and its previous owner, Justin Quirk, who later offered her £4,250 in compensation for discriminating on the basis of gender and age. The owner also apologized for the incident.

The woman claimed that after asking the question, the interviewer noted down her age and circled it saying, You don’t look it. When she learned about her rejection, she was sure that she was turned down due to her age and sex.

She immediately thought back to the interview and the question about her age. She believed that his age was an issue and it had affected the decision made by the interview panel.

To confirm her doubts, Walsh contacted the branch via Facebook and told them her concerns. Later, Walsh heard from another employee at the outlet that the job she applied for was suited for people between 18 and 30.

Soon after, she was approached by a member of the interview panel. They stated that they did not know it was inappropriate to ask a person’s age.

She has only ever seen men working as drivers and he thought she was overlooked for a driver position because he has a woman. Domino’s continued to advertise for drivers after the interviews had taken place, said Walsh.
