Arrangements not indirectly discriminatory

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Lord Chancellor and Lord Chancellor's Department v Coker and Osamor (17 January 2001) EOR96B, the EAT rules that the Lord Chancellor did not indirectly discriminate on grounds of sex when he appointed a man as his special adviser without going through an open selection process. The "requirement" imposed by the Lord Chancellor for appointment, that the successful candidate must be personally known to him, could not be said to have had the requisite disproportionate impact on women as compared with men.
