    S v The Chief Constable, West Yorkshire Police [1998] ET/1802020/98 (0 other reports)

A Leeds employment tribunal (Chair: D R Sneath) in S v The Chief Constable, West Yorkshire Police rules that it has power to restrict reporting of proceedings involving a transsexual alleging sex discrimination in order to preserve her anonymity, even though the case did not involve allegations of the commission of a sexual offence or involve sexual misconduct.

The applicant is a male-to-female transsexual who claimed that West Yorkshire Police had discriminated against her on grounds of sex when it refused to employ her as a police officer.
