SEXUAL HARASSMENT : Indecent proposal

29 March 2013  

As the Liberal Democrats have found, the reputational damage caused by failing to deal with allegations of inappropriate behaviour in the workplace can be immense, report Jeffrey Jupp and Patricia Leonard

As is evident from the allegations about Lord Rennard and accounts recorded by the Everyday Sexism Project, sexual harassment is not confined to the workplaces of the 1970s and 80s. It is also clear that it is not restricted to any one sector – recently tribunals have dealt with cases of sexual harassment by hairdressers, trade union representatives, senior managers, bankers and restaurant owners.
