is this sexual harrasment

my gf applied for a job at a smoothy bar in and today got a call from them saying she wasnt succesful,fare does, she then gets a series of texts from the same number saying stuff like "fcuk me" fancy a shag" and a im your lover and love you comment aswel. now imo something needs to be done about this as the guy(it was a guy) clearly has her CV which has her/our address on. imo its sexual harrasment and breach of data protection act

    Be a man and confront the guy.

    Don't think writing a strong letter to your MP is gonna work mate.

    Forget having a word- find out who his boss is and have him fired.
    Utterly unacceptable.

    That would be the sensible thing to do but if that was my gf i'd take great pleasure out of going to the bar finding out who was responsible and banging his face off the bar.
     
    If no one owns up my 1st choice would probably be the bar manager

    she didnt get a interview there was a sign up saying part time worker wanted, so she handed in her CV and a few days later(today) she gets teh calls/texts

    the thing is the lass that took her CV just put it under the counter so it may have been left there for any of the staff to have a look at

    Could be anyone then mate.Can't think what you could really do except go down and have a word with the boss.Tell him she has been getting obscene calls from there since she handed in her resume.See what he says and go from there IMO.

    If the managers havent seen her than its probably idiots just messing about, still though this is not acceptable and you should take action. Probs best to go and see the manager and explain and not use the face/bar method.

    It would either fall under a criminal definition of harassment (not sexual harassment, as far as I know there is no such thing in UK law, but I'm not qualified in the UK so I could be wrong) or under a civil definition of the tort of trespass against the person, other than battery or assault.

    The law governing harassment in England is the 1997 Protection from Harassment Act. There is no strict definition of the word 'harassment' in the above act, but it basically says that an offence is committed if a person is "alarming the person [victim] or causing the person distress" if it cannot be shown that "the pursuit of the course of conduct was reasonable". If it persists you would almost certainly have a cause of action here.

    There is no cause of action for sexual assault, but I'd say talk to your lawyer and get him to write a letter to the guy in question insisting that he stops or you'll take further action against him. Also as you rightly say, there appears to be a breach of the relevant Data Protection law, but I wouldn't be too familiar with that because again I'm in Ireland not England.


    EDIT: alternatively just go and have a word with the guy. If I knew somebody was doing that to my gf I'd want to bosh them
