Racial and sexual harassment can pose questions of whether the employer should be held legally liable, as Harding v Dale Joinery Ltd1 Brannen v Frigoscandia (Grimsby) Ltd and Chisnall2 Cumberbatch v Hickson and Department of Social Security3 illustrate. Although the discrimination statutes impose a strict test of liability, an employer is only vicariously liable for acts done by employees in the course of their employment.
