    This is such a taboo subject but one I firmly believe is so easy and open to abuse. I believe that claims of sexual harassment against a companies in the UK/former employers is one of the easiest forms of extortion and something needs to happen to protect companies who are targeted by false claims. I firmly believe that many cases do not make it to court and only on the basis of an out of court settlement being made, many employers do not want to see themselves dragged through a court case naming staff, themselves and their business so often a financial offering is made hidden by insurers or a company settled as a commercial agreement with a COT3 agreement put in place.
