    A v B Ltd and others [1997] IT/2600329/97 (0 other reports)

In A v B Ltd and others a Nottingham industrial tribunal (Chair: D R Sneath) holds that an employer which simply put up a notice to the effect that sexual harassment was unacceptable and did nothing more, had no defence to a claim that it was vicariously liable for the sexual assault of a female employee by male employees.

Ms A was employed as a packer on eight-hour rotating shifts with a plastics manufacturer in August 1996.
