#metoo and tribunal changes could create ‘perfect storm’ for Christmas party claims, businesses warned
The rise of the #metoo movement and the abolition of employment tribunal fees could combine to produce a sharp increase in sexual harassment claims in the wake of this year’s round of Christmas parties.
The number of employment tribunal claims has climbed sharply since the fees introduced in 2013 were ruled unlawful last year, while the #metoo movement, which started to gain momentum in the wake of high-profile allegations in the United States late in 2017, is credited with contributing to improved reporting of sexual offences in several countries.
