Activities done by only one sex are "normal"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Ekpe v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis the EAT has overruled an employment tribunal that rejected a claim that a woman was disabled, even though she could not put rollers in her hair and could not always use her right hand to apply make-up, on grounds that neither was a "normal day-to-day activity" because they are activities carried out almost exclusively by women.

Mrs Ekpe was required by the Metropolitan Police to move to a job that involved keyboard duties.
