Sex discrimination: No 'range of reasonable responses' allowed in justification

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Hardys & Hansons plc v Lax [2005] EWCA (Civ) 846, the Court of Appeal holds that the employment tribunal applied the correct objective justification test for indirect sex discrimination. There was no room for a "range of reasonable responses" test, as in unfair dismissal cases, as far as the employer's attempt at justification for discriminatory treatment was concerned.
