    • Guidance on toilet facilities for transsexuals

      1 September 2003

      In Croft v Royal Mail Group plc (18 July 2003), the Court of Appeal rules that a pre-operative male-to-female transsexual was not discriminated against on grounds of sex when she was temporarily denied use of female communal toilet facilities, but holds that a permanent refusal could be an act of discrimination even if the person has not undergone gender reassignment surgery.

The facts

Sarah Croft is a pre-operative transsexual. She was employed by the Post Office from March 1987 as a van driver, collecting mail and taking it to the loading dock at the Leicester sorting centre.
