ABSTRACT
The article talks about issues of harassment in the workplace. The Deutsche Bank secretary awarded £800,000 by a High Court judge for being subjected to a campaign of harassment by colleagues. The 2006 House of Lords ruling in Majrowski v Guy's and St Thomas's NHS Trust opened the doors for people subjected to violence and harassment to sue their employer for negligence under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. A study which started in the 1990s showed that Great Britain is worse than the EU15 average, particularly Germany and Ireland.
