Tribunal case – damages for workplace harassment

Sep 18, 2021 | Employment Issues | 0 comments

Veakins v Kier Islington Ltd

This case highlights the potential of seeking damages for work place bullying or harassment using the Protection from Harassment Act. Despite not specifically applying to employment, the Act provides both criminal and civil routes to justice. The advantage being, unlike the Employment Tribunal, a police investigation or a more rigorous examination of the facts by the court, are likely to occur. A decision by the police not to pursue a criminal charge should not deter a victim from seeking civil remedy.
