  • Equality Act 2010: employment tribunal refuses to consider post-employment victimisation claim

    17 October 2012

    This employment tribunal decision highlights a drafting error in the Equality Act 2010 that means that post-employment victimisation is not covered. The decision that the claimant's post-employment victimisation claim could not proceed contrasts with the first-instance decision in Taiwo v Olaigbe and another ET/2389629/11, in which the employment tribunal allowed the same sort of claim to be heard.
