    Dillon v Outline Engraving Co Ltd [1994] IT/18526/93 (0 other reports)

An employer has an obligation to provide an environment free of sexual harassment and a system whereby an employee can complain of behaviour which is unwanted, offensive and humiliating, says a Manchester industrial tribunal (Chair: J Corcoran) in Dillon v Outline Engraving Co Ltd.

Elizabeth Dillon, an artist employed in the respondents' reprographic department, resigned after having been subjected to sexual harassment and sexist remarks over a prolonged period.
