A RECRUITMENT consultant is suing for sexual harassment claiming that her boss forced her to share a private lap-dance to win business. Rachel Kelly, 38, wept as she told how she was bullied into taking a client to a Spearmint Rhino lap-dancing club by her line manager, Danny Whelan. After a business dinner he told the 100,000-a-year recruiter it was unac- ceptable for her to go home, she claimed. Mr Whelan allegedly told her that her job with leading IT recruitment agency IDPP Consulting required her to entertain clients at lap-dancing clubs. Miss Kelly also told London South employment tribunal how another overly flirta- tious client groped her in the back of a taxi after she told Mr Whelan she did not want to be left alone with him. Miss Kelly, of I s lewo r t h , i s suing both IDPP Consulting and Mr Whelan. She is claiming vic- timisation and constructive dismissal and is believed to be demanding about 175,000 for lost earnings and hurt feelings. Miss Kelly said of the lap-dancing episode: Danny suggested that I should accompany him into the room for a private dance. I told him that I would rather not. However, Danny was very insistent. She said that after the other client became physical with her in the taxi, Mr Whelan joked to colleagues that he should leave her alone with the client more often so she would get more business. Mr Whelan claimed i n ev ide nc e t h a t Miss Kelly was laughing while the stripper performed. He and Miss Kelly have left the company IDPP and Mr Whelan deny Miss Kellys tribunal claims. The p a n e l i s expected to deliver its judgment next month.
