Sex discrimination: Employer vicariously liable for sexual harassment at work-related social events

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The Chief Constable of the constabulary to which police officers were originally appointed remained vicariously liable for acts of sex discrimination committed by his officers while they were on secondment to branches of the Regional Crime Squad, holds the EAT in Chief Constable of the Lincolnshire Constabulary v Stubbs and others [1999] IRLR 81. Further, an employment tribunal was entitled to find that, for the purposes of such vicarious liability, two incidents of sexual harassment that occurred at social gatherings involving officers, either immediately after work or for an organised leaving party, took place in the course of the officers' employment.
