Male nurse discriminated against

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In A v B a Nottingham employment tribunal (Chair: S Keevash) finds that a nursing home discriminated against a male nurse when it dismissed him because he carried out an internal vaginal examination of a patient, when no action would have been taken against female nurses who carried out intimate examinations of male patients.

The applicant was a nurse on night duty at a nursing home for patients with learning disabilities.
