ACAS positively discriminated in favour of women

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The arbitration service ACAS applied a policy of unlawful positive discrimination in favour of female employees at a particular grade with the result that the applicant was treated less favourably because he was a man and denied access to promotion opportunities, rules a Manchester industrial tribunal (Chair: J E Goodman) in Taylor v Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service.

Simon Taylor was one of 165 officers employed by ACAS at higher executive officer (HEO) level.
