A Muslim woman suing her former boss for race discrimination had allegedly emailed him Jewish jokes.
Secretary Jasmine Akhtar told a central London employment tribunal that partners at London firm Goodge Law racially abused her and called her a “Paki”.
She is seeking damages for derogatory remarks which she said got worse when she announced her pregnancy.
But Richard Samuel, defending the firm, said partner Michael Greenstein and Ms Akhtar had exchanged “friendly banter” about Mr Greenstein's Jewish background.
