Sexual Harassment

Home » Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment can take numerous forms affecting both male and female staff. Incidents range from things like inappropriate touching, assault or comments, to displaying inappropriate images in the workplace.

Sexual harassment claims are actionable in both the Employment Tribunal and either the County or High Court. The law relating to each jurisdiction differs with different legal principles applying.

It is important that you choose which avenue is the best option for you at the outset, as to attempt to pursue the same claim in both jurisdictions is likely to be considered to be an abuse of process, and may result in the latter claim being struck out. We will help you with this.

There are advantages and disadvantages to each option. Therefore, it is important that your legal representative is able to consider both claims at the outset, so you can make an informed decision as to how you wish to proceed.
