    Date:
    1 July 1995

    In London Underground Ltd v Edwards (15 March 1995) EOR62B, the EAT rules that an inference of intentional discrimination can be drawn from an employer's knowledge of the unfavourable consequences resulting from application of an indirectly discriminatory requirement, so as to justify an award of compensation.

  • Determining whether indirect discrimination is intentional

    Date:
    1 June 1995

    In London Underground Ltd v Edwards the EAT has held that in determining whether an indirectly discriminatory requirement or condition was applied with the intention to treat a woman less favourably on grounds of sex, so as to permit an award of compensation, intention can be inferred from an employer's knowledge of the unfavourable consequences for the claimant as a woman.
