Sex discrimination: Mobility clause indirectly discriminatory against women
This report relates to 1 case(s)
In Meade-Hill and another v The British Council, the Court of Appeal holds that the inclusion of a mobility clause in a married woman's contract of employment constituted indirect discrimination against her as a woman under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975. The clause was therefore unenforceable unless her employer could objectively justify its inclusion.
Indirect sex discrimination is defined by s.1(1)(b) of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 ("SDA").
