This report relates to 1 case(s)
Canniffe v East Riding of Yorkshire Council  IRLR 555 EAT (1 other report)
In Canniffe v East Riding of Yorkshire Council (17 April 2000) EOR93C, the EAT rules that an employer does not satisfy the defence for liability for sexual harassment merely by showing that there was nothing it could have done to stop the harassment from occurring. In order to satisfy the statutory defence, an employer must show positively that it took such steps as were reasonably practicable.
