Injury to feelings heightened by childhood abuse

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In A v B a Newcastle upon Tyne employment tribunal (Chair: P G Rennie) holds that a woman who was subjected to a four-month campaign of sexual harassment by her employer was unlawfully discriminated against on grounds of sex, and awards compensation of £18,500, including £12,000 for injury to feelings which were heightened by the sexual abuse that she had experienced as a child.

Ms A was employed as a counter assistant in a fish and chip shop, owned by the male respondent, from October 1998 until her dismissal in March 1999.
