2TG Employment Webinar: The New Statutory Duty on Employers to Prevent Sexual Harassment at Work

Posted: 13/12/2023

Helen Bell considers the implications of the Worker Protection (Amendment of Equality Act 2010) Act 2023 for employees and employers and in particular examines the scope of the new duty on employers to take reasonable steps to prevent sexual harassment.

Helen specialises in personal injury and employment law and has particular expertise in dealing with cases where those two specialisms overlap, including claims for psychiatric injury caused by bullying and harassment (whether brought in the employment tribunal or the civil courts), occupational stress and disability discrimination. She practices in all areas of employment law and has extensive experience of handling legally and factually complex claims, frequently involving overlapping claims for constructive unfair dismissal, discrimination and whistleblowing. Described in the directories as “a superb advocate who is thorough, tenacious and intelligent” and as someone who “excels in dealing with complex claims” Helen is able to bring a unique and invaluable judicial perspective to her work as a barrister for her clients following her appointment as a fee paid judge in 2020. Helen is passionate about promoting diversity within her profession having herself pursued a non-traditional route to the bar. Current cases include acting for Respondent EL insurer in EAT appeal against a tribunal’s judgment dismissing a high value claim for disability discrimination brought against it, exceptionally, under the Third Parties (Rights Against Insurers) Act 2010.
