Company online harassment?
PAIL® Solicitors specialists in online anti-social behaviour cases review whether company online harassment is possible
In Kosar v. Bank of Scotland Plc [t/a Halifax]: QBD [Admin] [Mr Justice Silber]: 18 January 2011:
The appellant (Kosar) appealed against a district judge`s decision that the offence of harassment under section 2 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 could only be committed by a person who was an individual against another individual person. The judges allowed the appeal. That is to say, they held that a Company can be a person for the purposes of the Act when they are the perpetrators of harassment but not as victims of harassment.
By the way, it is possible to harass individuals in a company, if there is evidence that they are being targeted as individuals.
