An article written on the 21st of November 2012 outlines how a female employee of J&M services raised a case against her former courier service employer based on sexual harassment and victimisation. Whilst working for the company she was the only female member of staff and the tribunal heard how she was subjected to many disgraceful comments and was unfairly dismissed after she arrived late from a doctor’s appointment for her child. She was then informed b her employers that they would be letting her go via text message after she informed the company she would be late. The tribunal was in favour of the female employer and the courier company was forced to pay œ27000 in damages. The correct procedure for harassment based on her sex had not been followed as there was no attempt made to rectify the errors made and an unfair dismissal was carried out
