Employee branded ‘immature’ after complaining of sexual harassment wins £15,000

A bathroom supplies company has been ordered to pay more than £15,000 by Watford Employment Tribunal, after its director called an employee “immature” and fired her for alleging sexual harassment.

Marta Podlecka was employed as a cost estimator by MYM Global between December 2016 and August 2017. She initially worked full time before going part time on three-and-a-half days a week.

Podlecka told the tribunal that, from June 2017, she was subjected to sex discrimination by Moshe Genish, her boss and the owner of the business. Podlecka described how Genish regularly subjected her to sexual comments and touched her inappropriately on the hand on multiple occasions. She said the degree of his behaviour made her feel stressed about being alone with him at work.
