Christian worker sent 'sexy knickers' emails to married male colleague
London, Feb 24 (ANI): A Welsh woman working at a Christian centre sent sexy emails describing her lacy underwear to a married IT manager leading to him getting sacked by his company.
Office worker Rachael Williams allegedly told IT manager Christopher Taylor that she "woke up wanting him", to which he replied: "I might have to visit", a tribunal in Cardiff was told.
The tribunal was further told that Williams, 37, emailed the computer expert saying: "Just to keep you working hard: pale pink with lacy thread."
Married father-of-two Taylor, 45, was sacked after being accused of moonlighting for the Christian training college in Wiltshire where Williams worked.
He has claimed that he was unfairly fired by Gwent-based Carlisle Brake Products.
But the tribunal was told that the sexy emails from Williams were proof of his close relationship with the Centre for Youth Ministry.
Alastair David, barrister for Carlisle, said the emails between Taylor and Williams proved they were having an affair.
"One email reads: 'Just to keep you working: pale pink with lacy thread.' That is her underwear," the Daily Express quoted David as saying.
"Why is she telling you about her underwear?" David asked.
Taylor replied: "I have no idea, it looks like a fairly jokey email to me. There has to be some fun in the world."
Taylor, of Barry, South Wales, denied having an affair with Williams.
Bosses at Carlisle Brake Products, based in Pontypool, claim they fired Taylor after discovering he spent 40 per cent of his time moonlighting for other companies.
The firm traced telephone calls of between 25 to 40 minutes during work hours to the Christian centre in Swindon.
"We discovered that he was making 25-40 minutes of calls each month to the youth ministry," the general manager of Carlisle, Michael Williamson, told the hearing.
"We contacted the centre and they confirmed that Mr Taylor was working for them. He was putting in a lot of hours, but unknown to us, he was also doing a lot of hours for other people," he added.
Williamson further alleged that Taylor was leaking commercially sensitive and confidential information to another company. owever, Taylor said he carried out work for other organisations on a "quid pro quo" basis because it was a help for his own company.
He argued that his employers had failed to follow proper procedures in dismissing him, that he was working beyond his remit and expected to train others outside his job description.
He also claimed he was bullied at Carlisle. But another witness earlier told the tribunal that Taylor had alienated his colleagues with his own "intimidating" behaviour and tried to get a worker sacked.
Taylor is claiming unfair dismissal. The company is counter-claiming that he was in breach of contract.
The tribunal continues. (ANI)
