    ACAS v Taylor EAT/788/97 (1 other report)

    • Positive discrimination finding upheld

      1 June 1998

      In ACAS v Taylor the EAT has dismissed an appeal against an industrial tribunal's finding that the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) unlawfully discriminated in favour of female employees in respect of promotion opportunities.

In ACAS v Taylor 11.2.98 EAT 788/97, the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's decision that ACAS applied a policy of positive discrimination in favour of female employees applying for promotion to senior executive officer grade, and that a male applicant for promotion suffered unlawful sex discrimination as a result.

Mr Taylor was employed by ACAS as a higher executive officer (HEO).
