    Marshall v The Post Office [1999] ET/2602447/97 (1 other report)

    • Recommendation that harassers be transferred

      Date:
      1 December 1999

      Following its ruling that the Post Office had discriminated against one of its female employees on grounds of sex and by victimisation (above), a Nottingham employment tribunal (Chair: S Keevash) in Marshall v The Post Office awards compensation of £14,000 and makes a six-point recommendation which includes the transfer of the complainant's harassers.

In Marshall v The Post Office, upholding a female postal worker's complaints of unlawful sex discrimination and discrimination by way of victimisation, a Nottingham employment tribunal (Chair: S Keevash) finds that the Post Office failed to take such steps as were reasonably practicable to prevent employees from sexually harassing and abusing her or from subjecting her to detriment in the conduct of the investigation of her complaints.

Ms Marshall commenced employment with the Post Office as a postal worker in 1984.
