    M v Ministry of Defence [1997] IT/55542/95 (0 other reports)

In M v The Ministry of Defence a Manchester industrial tribunal (Chair: E R Donnelly) awards compensation of £65,377, including £25,000 for injury to feelings, personal injury and loss of congenial employment, to a former Wren who endured almost four years of sexual harassment, causing her to develop a depressive illness leading to her discharge from the Navy.

Ms M, who joined the Navy as a 17-year-old in 1991, took an overdose of paracetamol in February 1995 after almost four years of constant sexual harassment.
