Sex discrimination: Former employee can claim to have been unlawfully victimised

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Coote v Granada Hospitality Ltd (No.2) 19.5.99 EAT 1332/95, the EAT holds that it is possible to construe the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 so as to enable a claimant to make a victimisation complaint in relation to events that occurred after the employment relationship had terminated. Such a complaint falls within s.6 of the Act, both because of the language of the section and because it brings the section into conformity with the EC Equal Treatment Directive.
