Woman disciplined for calling workmate a ‘nonce’ wins £8,000 after claiming she was imitating Peaky Blinders

FIT OF PEAK

AN estate agent disciplined for calling a workmate a “nonce” has won almost £8,000 after claiming she was imitating TV’s Peaky Blinders.

Amiee Knights, 30, resigned when she got a written warning.

The £40,000-a-year lettings manager claimed she had no idea what the insult from the BBC gangster drama meant.

She fell out with staff at Wrights in Welwyn Garden City, Herts, in a Christmas party row.

Workers were threatening to boycott the annual office party and Salvatore Tona was trying to persuade them to change their minds.

It resulted in Knights telling Tona: “F*** off, you nonce.”

But a Watford tribunal heard Tona had called another worker the same thing that day.

Judges ruled that Amiee was unfairly treated and ruled she had been disciplined without letting her tell her side of the story.

But Judge Oliver Hyams cut her compo to £7,708.56 as she was “skating on thin ice”.
