Our client worked as a PA and was subjected to a campaign of sexual harassment and advances by her male manager. This included him asking her to attend weekend trips abroad and strip clubs. He also bought her a dress and asked for her to send him pictures of her in it.
After our our client made it clear that she was not interested in him, the manager treated her differently, to include changing her job role, which eventually led to her dismissal on the ground of redundancy.
We bought claims for sex discrimination and harassment, arguing that the redundancy was a fraudulent process and that our client had been victimised for turning down the advances. The matter settled for a large sum without the need for any tribunal hearing. Our client also received a reference for future employers and her feedback is below:
“I have had a great experience in settling my case with both Amit and Emma. I could not thank them enough for the professional and caring service at all times, even out of hours!
When I was looking for help, this was my third phone call with a solicitor when needing advice on my matter. When speaking to Amit he made me feel confident in progressing the matter- did not judge the situation at all.”
