Peninsula Business Service Ltd v Baker [EAT] 01.03.17 (Unreported)

In order to succeed in a harassment claim under Equality Act 2010 s.26(1) a claimant had to demonstrate, and not merely assert, that he was disabled for the purposes of the Act. Inquiry agents had not victimised an employee by carrying out surveillance, since they were unaware of any protected acts, and as the agents were not liable for any tort, s.109(2) did not impose any liability on the employer or principal for victimisation.
