Absolute "must" unnecessary in sex discrimination case

This report relates to 1 case(s)

A requirement or condition does not have to be an absolute bar in order to allege indirect sex discrimination, according to a London South industrial tribunal (Chair: E R Donnelly) in Tickle v Governors of Riverview C F School and Surrey County Council. The tribunal also suggests that the absence of a remedy for unintentional indirect discrimination under the Sex Discrimination Act may be contrary to European Community law.
