    • Croft v Royal Mail Group plc

      Date:
      1 January 2005

      In Croft v Royal Mail Group plc [2003] IRLR 592 CA, the Court of Appeal held that, in considering what amounts to less favourable treatment on grounds of gender reassignment, it does not follow that all such persons are entitled immediately to be treated as members of the sex to which they aspire.

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.
