Employer liability for work-related social function

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Stubbs v Chief Constable Lincolnshire Police and others a Nottingham industrial tribunal (Chair: D R Sneath) holds Lincolnshire's chief constable liable for the unlawful acts of a male police officer who sexually harassed a female colleague in public houses after work. According to the tribunal, the harasser was acting "in the course of employment" because the incidents would not have happened but for the applicant's work.

DC Stubbs was on a five-year secondment from the Lincolnshire police force to the regional crime squad.
