  • Equality Act 2010: employment tribunal allows post-employment victimisation claim to proceed

    17 October 2012

    This pre-hearing review 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 should be allowed to proceed contrasts with the first-instance decision in Jessemey v Rowstock Ltd and another ET/2700838/11 and ET/2701156/11, in which the employment tribunal rejected the same sort of claim.
