Sex discrimination: Prima facie case requires more than a difference in sex and a difference in treatment

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Madarassy v Nomura International plc [2007] IRLR 246, the Court of Appeal has held that a "possibility" of discrimination arising only from a difference in gender and a difference in treatment is not, without more, sufficient to support an inference of unlawful discrimination, thereby shifting the burden of proof to the employer.
