Burton Albion Statement

A spokesman for Burton Albion said:


"We are delighted that the Tribunal has reached the correct decision in this case.


"Kerry Miller was employed at the club from September 2011, working in sales and support administration.


“During her employment, the club became aware of behaviour by her which was felt to be unprofessional and outside of the remit of the role that she was employed to undertake.


“As soon as the club became aware of these matters, we took action to stop the behaviour from being repeated. As a result of issues being raised with Ms Miller, she resigned from her employment on 20 February 2012 and issued proceedings against the club for constructive dismissal and sex discrimination.


“The club has always felt that it has acted correctly in its actions towards Ms Miller and therefore took the decision to defend the proceedings.   


"We are pleased that the Tribunal has accepted that we did not act improperly towards Ms Miller, and that she was not subjected to any discrimination during her employment with the club.


"As a club, we have an excellent relationship with our staff, who we expect to behave properly, and appropriately within a professional environment.


“As a responsible employer we have taken all necessary measures to ensure that a similar situation does not arise again and have reminded all staff of their responsibilities to the club, supporters and sponsors."
