A Muslim chef who claimed he was unfairly sacked and was subject to racist abuse at Gordon Ramsay's flagship restaurant has settled out of court.
In July, it emerged that Tama Siby was planning to sue Ramsay, his company and two of his chefs for unfair dismissal and race and religious discrimination.
Siby worked at Ramsay's eponymous restaurant on Royal Hospital Road in Chelsea, west London.
The case was due to go before the central London employment tribunal yesterday, but it was settled just beforehand, Siby's lawyer confirmed.
Shah Qureshi, from law firm Webster Dixon, said: "My client has reached a settlement with Gordon Ramsay."
He did not disclose the level of the settlement, saying the terms of the agreement were confidential.
It is understood Siby's original claim was for £50,000 in damages to cover an alleged unlawful deduction of wages, injury to feelings and loss of earnings.
After hearing the claims in July, Claire Lynn, the head of human resources for Gordon Ramsay Holdings, called a meeting of senior managers.
She told them of the issues raised by Siby - and warned that if there was any offensive kitchen banter it had to stop.
