London, Oct 5 (ANI): A British saleswoman has got 35,000 pounds in a sexual harassment case against her boss after he groped her bottom during a business trip.

Nicola Furlong, 39, who earned up to 90,000 pounds a year, said she was groped on a sales conference to Nashville, Tennessee, with male workmates from BMC, of Egham, Surrey, reports the Sun.

She revealed that her boss Bart Fanelli put his hand up her skirt, fondled her and said he would like to "eat her like a marshmallow".

She said she was later "warned off" from making a formal complaint against Fanelli, a senior vice president at the US parent company of her firm BMC Software Limited.

The single mum, the only woman in the UK team, was also jeered when she refused to go into a lap-dancing club - where clients were often taken to clinch deals.

She said her managing director said she "would have been up on the table with her t**s out".

The tribunal in Reading, Berks, ruled a claim of sex discrimination "well founded". (ANI)
