    Negus v Hughes Electronics and others [1996] IT/67457/95 (0 other reports)

In Negus v Hughes Electronics and others a London South industrial tribunal (Chair: R W Rideout) rules that unwanted acts which amount to sexual harassment are inherently sex discriminatory and cannot be defended by claiming that a man was treated the same way.

Ms Negus was employed as an office junior at age 16.
