Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
You cannot realistically make a claim against the manager for what happened. Such a situation is hardly unique but at best it would be unethical, rather than unlawful. The issue is you cannot make a claim for unethical behaviour and in the end this was a consensual relationship between two adults and there are no grounds for a claim.
I appreciate this may not be the answer you were hoping for but it is the legal position and I hope that it at least clarifies where you stand?
Sadly that does not in any way change my initial response, there are simply no grounds to make any sort of legal claim there, the best you can hope for is to raise an internal grievance through the employer but there won't be much they can do apart from perhaps have a word with him or at most discipline him
All the best
