“Plaintiff avers that it is against this background of persistent sexual harassment and abuse by the 1″ Defendant on the plaintiff, while the 2nd Defendant looked on without taking measures to eliminate same but encouraged same by her acts of omission that plaintiff had no alternative than to fall prey in the hands of the 1″ Defendant and gave in to a Parlor relationship with the 1st Defendant,” a portion of the suit filed by her lawyer, Mohamed Atta at the Accra High Court reads.
“Plaintiff avers that during her national service work, she and the 1″ Defendant entered into a Parlor relationship.

“Plaintiff avers that, when she started working with the 2n° Defendant bank, she observed persistent sexual harassment by senior male officers against female workers of the bank and if you failed to give in to their demands, your life in the bank is made unhappy, uncomfortable and unfriendly to work in.
“Plaintiff avers that virtually every senior manager has a girlfriend in the bank and they change the ladies at their will to the knowledge of the managers of the 2nd Defendant bank. They also use us the female staff to make advances to very rich customers with a view to sleeping with them and getting them to open accounts with the bank to the detriment of the female staff.”
