Review of "Barclays Bank"
I am a former Customer Service Rep. for Barclay's Bank (an EU /
UK based company) and was illegally fired for hanging pictures of
Jesus Christ up at my private cubicle in the Wilmington, Delaware call

or counseled for breaking policy in the past. In fact, I was
subjected to sexual harassment by several of my co-workers and handled

This is a matter of principal to me and I believe that pursuing a
remedy to this matter is of the utmost importance to preserving
diversity in the work place. I'm humbly asking your attention to this
matter and I
hope to hear from your organization. I'm a proverbial David fighting
a global Giant and need as much help getting the message out as I can get.
