Sexual orientation discrimination: Pub's "repositioning" unlawfully discriminated on ground of sexual orientation

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Lisboa v Realpubs Ltd and others EAT/0224/10, the EAT held that the way in which the employer pursued its strategy to "reposition" a formerly gay pub to widen its customer base amounted to treating its customers less favourably on grounds of sexual orientation. Accordingly, an assistant manager who was required to cooperate with and work within that strategy suffered direct discrimination and was constructively dismissed.
