Hi. I have been asked to look at this. I'm not sure what you were hoping to prosecute for specifically?
There isn't an offence that covers that. He is perfectly free to have CCTV in his pub. If she is an employee then I'm afraid she is not being harassed.
He doesn't need to erect signs warning people about the cameras and, in fact, from a crime detection point of view there wouldn't be any point in that.
Most employers have CCTV footage and they don't need any specific permissions.
The only issue may be data protection but all that would mean is that he had to keep the footage in a way that complies with the DPA and anyway it is not an offence.
I'm very sorry but that is your position.
Can I clarify anything for you?
All the best.
