    20 January 2006

    In Home Office v Saunders, the EAT holds that, in a direct sex discrimination claim under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, the employment tribunal did not err in finding that the correct hypothetical comparator for a female prison officer conducting a search on a male prisoner was a male prison officer conducting a search on a female prisoner.
