Calling a man ‘bald’ is s3x harassment after employment tribunal compares it to commenting on a woman’s breasts… as electrician called ‘bald cunt’ by supervisor is set to win compensation for having ‘dignity violated’
Calling a man ‘bald’ is sex harassment, an employment tribunal has ruled after an employee complained about being called a ‘bald cunt’.
Tony Finn had worked for the West Yorkshire-based British Bung Company for almost 24 years when he was fired in May last year.
He took them to the tribunal claiming, among other things, that he had been the victim of sex harassment following an incident with factory supervisor Jamie King.
Mr Finn alleged that during a shop floor row that almost erupted in violence in July 2019, Mr King had referred to him as a ‘bald cunt’.
Hair loss is much more prevalent among men than women so using it to describe someone is a form of discrimination, a judge found.
