The employment tribunal in this case had the unusual task of deciding whether or not a female employee was sexually harassed when she witnessed her male line manager and another man re-enacting a scene from the film Ghost at an office party. While the tribunal found that this incident was not harassment under the Equality Act 2010, the employer was ordered to pay the claimant £2,000 for several other incidents that displayed her line manager's "predilection for innuendo", and to reimburse £1,200 in tribunal fees to the claimant.
