“‘I didn’t know I was harassing you’ won’t fly as a defence in workplace sexual harassment cases in SA” by businesstech.co.za

Businesstech.co.za quotes Johannesburg lawyer, Neil Searle, in an article on defence in workplace sexual harassment cases in SA.

This is according to Neil Searle, partner at law firm Fasken, who highlighted the recent Labour Court decision in Rustenburg Platinum Mines Limited v UASA obo Pietersen as one such example.

“The Commissioner took issue with the fact that the employee had not clearly and unambiguously said ‘no’ to (the) advances,” said Searle.
