Chief Constable of the West Yorkshire Police v A and another [2002] IRLR 103 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Sex discrimination: No conflict between domestic and European provisions on employing transsexuals

    Date:
    15 January 2002

    An employment tribunal was wrong to find that there existed a conflict between the gender reassignment provisions of the SDA and the Equal Treatment Directive because of the theoretical possibility of an absolute bar on the employment of transsexuals as police constables on the ground that they would be liable to be called upon to perform intimate physical searches, the EAT holds in The Chief Constable of the West Yorkshire Police v A and the Secretary of State for Education and Employment.
