JAMES WYNNE SUCCESSFUL IN DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT CLAIM AGAINST ONE OF BRITAIN’S BIGGEST UNIONS

Sally Nailard v Unite the Union

The Employment Tribunal sitting at Watford has handed down its judgment finding Unite liable for the sexual harassment and sex discrimination of one of its Regional Officers based at Heathrow. The tribunal found that three senior officers, including the union’s Chief of Staff, had discriminated against their own employee, and that the union was responsible for the harassment and discrimination carried out by its elected representatives on the basis that they were ‘employees’ and agents of the union under s83 EqA 2010.

James Wynne acted for the Claimant, instructed by Peter Emanuel of Richard Slade & Company.

A link to the judgment can be found here.

The case has been reported in the national press here and here.
