No retrospective cause of action under human rights provisions for lesbian schoolteacher

This report relates to 1 case(s)

According to the Court of Appeal, the teacher, who was subjected to homophobic taunts and harassment by pupils that did not, at the time they occurred, amount to less favourable treatment on the grounds of her sex under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 ("the SDA"), could not rely on provisions of the European Convention on Human Rights ("the Convention"), as scheduled to the Human Rights Act 1998 ("the HRA"), to claim retrospective compensation.
