Suzanne McKie KC quoted regarding sexual harassment claims involving MPs
Suzanne McKie KC quoted in the press regarding access to justice and compensation in sexual harassment claims involving MPs.
“Suzanne McKie KC, who represents Ms A, said MPs are covered by a £5m insurance policy if they are sued for libel or slander, but by a £250,000 policy if an employee claims sexual harassment. She said nearly all of the £250,000 insurance policy that the Commons had put in place in Ms A’s case had been spent on Hill’s legal fees.
“The bigger picture is that MPs’ employees who are subjected to sexual harassment and are forced out of their jobs cannot receive proper compensation because of the limited nature of the MPs’ insurance policy. It is a scandal,” she said.”
