Sex discrimination: Blaming victim of sexual harassment was not gender-based attitude

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The fact that the sexual harassment of an employee was treated by her line manager as her fault could not be related to her sex as opposed to poor relationships with other members of staff, holds the Court of Appeal in Home Office v Coyne 27.7.00 Court of Appeal. There was no finding by the employment tribunal, and no material from which to infer, that the line manager's attitude was sexually discriminatory.
