We round up what caught Tribunal Watch's eye on Twitter in the week beginning 6 February 2012, with decisions in several appeal cases putting religious and sexual orientation discrimination in the news again. These include:
- an Employment appeal tribunal decision that a gay lawyer who discovered a homophobic comment in case file was discriminated against;
- a Court of Appeal judgment that Christian B&B owners discriminated against a gay couple by turning them away; (on the Guardian website); and
- a High Court ruling that councils have no statutory rights to hold prayers at meetings (on the Guardian website).
XpertHR has also published a new good practice guide on sexual orientation [subscription required] to help employers to identify the actions that they can take to build an inclusive workplace for lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) employees, while supporting the needs of the business. We also discuss sexual orientation discrimination on our XpertHR Weekly podcast.
