In a letter in the Guardian, 11 equal rights lawyers say there have been previous cases of staff suing employers over exposure to pornographic material at work. They are now calling on retailers to stop selling "lads' mag" publications:
High-street retailers are exposing staff and, in some cases, customers to publications whose handling and display may breach equality legislation.
Displaying lads' mags and pornographic papers in 'mainstream' shops results in the involuntary exposure of staff and, in some cases, customers to pornographic images.
Every mainstream retailer which stocks lads' mags is vulnerable to legal action by staff and, where those publications are visibly on display, by customers.
