Statement of Claim
Plaintiff is an unemployed woman residing in Labadi, Accra.
1st Defendant is a director of finance working with the 2nd Defendant bank’s Head Office in Accra.
2nd Defendant is a bank and or financial institution registered under the laws of the Republic of Ghana with its registered office in Accra and is the employer of the 1st Defendant, and also where the plaintiff worked as a National Service personnel until her exit from the bank.
Plaintiff avers that, between her and the 2nd Defendant, she worked with the 2nd Defendant bank as a National Service personnel and the 1st Defendant was her superior as the Chief Finance Officer (CFO) at the 2nd Defendant bank.
Plaintiff avers that on or about 10/10/2020, she was posted to the 2nd Defendant bank Head Office to do her National Service where the 1st Defendant worked as the Head of the Finance department designated as the Chief Finance Officer (CFO).
Plaintiff avers that during her national service work, she and the 1st Defendant entered into a Parlor relationship. Plaintiff avers that the relationship started as a result of persistent sexual harassment and abuse by the 1st Defendant, a superior officer who wielded a lot of power which the plaintiff finally gave in without which she would have found working in the 2nd Defendant’s office a nightmare.
Plaintiff avers that, when she started working with the 2nd Defendant bank, she observed persistent sexual harassment by senior male officers against female workers of the bank, and if she failed to give in to their demands, her 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 we the female staff to make advances to very rich customers to sleep with them and get them to open accounts with the bank to the detriment of the female staff.
Plaintiff avers that it is against this background of persistent sexual harassment and abuse by the 15 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 1st Defendant and gave in to a Parlor relationship with the 1st Defendant. Plaintiff avers that the 2nd Defendant as her employer owed her a duty of care which 2nd Defendant failed her, and worst still, 2nd Defendant also pushed her to reach out to male customers to bait them with sex in exchange for opening accounts with the bank.
Plaintiff avers that her Parlor relationship was open and known to almost all the workers in the 2nd Defendant bank and the 2nd Defendant. Not only was the 2nd Defendant aware the plaintiff engaged in this unholy and unhealthy work relationship, but it was also the order of the day in the 2nd Defendant’s bank which the 2nd Defendant looked on without protecting his/her female workers, and in this case the Plaintiff.
Plaintiff avers that, at the time she came in as a National Service personnel, there was a female married woman worker who was also harassed and gave in, and it was an open secret in the bank known by all the workers and no one can question same since you stand to lose your job with the 2nd Defendant bank.
Plaintiff avers that no employee is prepared to testify to this effect since all of them fear losing their jobs, and this is a single battle the plaintiff undertakes to fight with the hope that many female workers will be liberated from their bondage.
Plaintiff avers that, at all material times, the 2nd Defendant owed a duty of care to its employees especially female employees who were perpetually sexually harassed and abused in the workplace to the knowledge of the 2nd Defendant who looked on and encouraged the same since all the top executives were involved in this sex matches, with the Plaintiff’s own with the 1st defendant.
