A privacy order given by an employment tribunal anonymised the complainant because he was subject to an allegation of sexual harassment. Held: the privacy order was lifted and the name original complainant was made public. The EAT held that the tribunal failed to balance the complainant’s rights under ECHR, art 8 and the public interest in open justice.
Thomas Kibling was involved in this case.
