    Ado-Jingwa v Connex South Eastern Ltd [2001] ET/1101612/99 (0 other reports)

In Ado-Jingwa v Connex South Eastern Ltd, an Ashford employment tribunal (Chair: V Cooney) has found that an employer was not legally liable for failing to protect a railway conductor from racial abuse from passengers. The steps taken by the employer to minimise the risk of abuse represented a "real effort" to prevent or reduce harassment.
