Discrimination: Approach to be taken to harassment complaints

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Key points

In Scott v Commissioners of Inland Revenue the Court of Appeal holds:

  • An employment tribunal erred in awarding only £15,000 in respect of the psychiatric injury caused to an employee by the way in which his employer dealt with allegations of sexual harassment made against him by a work colleague. The tribunal had not properly considered the expert evidence upon which this sum was based.
