Age discrimination: No protection against post-employment victimisation
This report relates to 1 case(s)
The Court of Appeal has now confirmed in Jessemey v Rowstock Ltd and another  EWCA Civ 185 CA that the Equality Act 2010 can be interpreted to cover post-employment victimisation.
In Rowstock Ltd and another v Jessemey and Equality & Human Rights Commission  IRLR 439 EAT, the EAT held that the Equality Act 2010 does not provide protection against post-employment victimisation.
- Section 108(7) of the Equality Act 2010, while prohibiting both discrimination against and harassment of former employees, specifically excludes from the scope of s.108 victimisation occurring after an employment relationship ends.
