Ted Baker boss accused of “forced hugging” and leading culture of harassment

Hundreds of former or current staff at Ted Baker have signed a petition demanding an end to “forced hugging” by the fashion retailer’s CEO Ray Kelvin and demanding an end to “a culture that leaves harassment unchallenged”.

In a petition posted on employee campaign site Organise, the employees claim that Ted Baker’s HR team “has done nothing” with reports of harassment and ask for the company to set up a way of reporting harassment to an independent, external body.

They add: “Directors who abuse their power should be held to account. Harassment at Ted Baker is well documented but wilfully ignored by those in charge. It’s time to break the silence.”

The petition has so far been signed by around 2,500 people, of which almost 200 are understood to be current or former employees.
