This report relates to 1 case(s)

  • expand disabled

    Banks v Ablex Limited [2005] All ER (D) 366 (Feb) CA (0 other reports)

Key points

In Banks v Ablex Ltd, the Court of Appeal holds:

  • The claimant suffered a depressive disorder, allegedly as a result of the conduct of a colleague, but failed to establish that a course of conduct had taken place that could be properly described as harassment under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, in that she failed to show that the misconduct had occurred on at least two occasions. The appeal on this point was therefore dismissed.
