Sex discrimination: Woman's offence at pin-ups not related to her sex
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Stewart v Cleveland Guest (Engineering) Ltd  IRLR 440 EAT (1 other report)
In Stewart v Cleveland Guest (Engineering) Ltd, the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's decision that a woman who was deeply upset and offended by pictures of naked women being displayed in her male-dominated workplace, and whose complaints were trivialised by her employer, was not subjected to unlawful sex discrimination. The EAT finds no error of law or perversity in the tribunal's conclusions that, although the complainant was subjected to a detriment, this was not on the ground of her sex because the material in question was "neutral" and was no more offensive to a woman than it would have been to a man; and that a man who complained about such material would have met with the same negative response as the complainant received.
