Majrowski v Guy's and St Thomas's NHS Trust  IRLR 340 CA (3 other reports)
A recent ruling by the Court of Appeal means that employers may now face civil liability claims for stress and anxiety caused by harassment, under the terms of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, writes Paul Quain of Linklaters.
If an employee complained to their employer that they were being bullied, intimidated and harassed by their department manager, that employer might not expect to face a claim in the county court under legislation which was introduced in the 1990s to tackle stalkers.
