Fletcher and Steele v Cannon Hygiene Ltd

A failure by an employer to separate two women from their female harasser amounted to harassment. The employer failed to take sufficient steps to ‘protect’ them from further sex harassment.

Conclusion for me

A failure by an employer to separate two women from their female harasser amounted to harassment. The employer failed to take sufficient steps to ‘protect’ them from further sex harassment.

European Commission Code of Practice on Sex Harassment 1991 suggest separating the victim from the alleged harasser: “Even where a complaint is not upheld, for example, because the evidence is regarded as inconclusive, consideration should be given to transferring or rescheduling the work of one of the employees’ concerned rather than requiring them to continue to work together against the wishes of either party.”
