Lords rule on harassment and liability

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In MacDonald v Advocate-General for Scotland; Pearce v Governing Body of Mayfield Secondary School (19 June 2003), the House of Lords rules that a comparator is always required in a case of sexual harassment, that discrimination on grounds of sex does not encompass discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation, and that the "Bernard Manning" case on employer liability for third-party harassment was wrongly decided.
