Sex discrimination: Discriminatory act occurring after the termination of employment is not actionable

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Relaxion Group plc v Rhys-Harper 3.5.01 Court of Appeal, the Court of Appeal upholds the decision of the EAT that the employment tribunal had no jurisdiction to consider a free-standing claim of sex discrimination related to an act that took place after employment had ended. The EC Equal Treatment Directive requires only that employees must have a remedy if they are victimised after employment has terminated and has no bearing on the meaning of s.6(2) of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975. Section 6(2) does not extend to acts or events occurring after the termination of employment.
