Stewart v Cleveland Guest (Engineering) Ltd [1994] IRLR 440 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Sex discrimination: Woman's offence at pin-ups not related to her sex

    Date:
    1 September 1994

    In Stewart v Cleveland Guest (Engineering) Ltd, the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's decision that a woman who was deeply upset and offended by pictures of naked women being displayed in her male-dominated workplace, and whose complaints were trivialised by her employer, was not subjected to unlawful sex discrimination.

  • Pin-ups not discriminatory

    Date:
    1 September 1994

    In Stewart v Cleveland Guest (Engineering) Ltd (23 June 1994) EOR57D, the EAT dismisses an appeal against an industrial tribunal's finding that it was not sex discrimination to require a woman to work in a workplace in which male employees were allowed to display pictures of nude women, even though the employers knew that this was offensive to her, because a hypothetical man might also have objected to the pin-ups.
