Sexual orientation discrimination: Homophobic banter directed at heterosexual did not constitute harassment

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In English v Thomas Sanderson Blinds Ltd [2008] IRLR 342, the EAT held that a worker who alleged that he was subjected to homophobic treatment from his workmates could not bring a complaint of harassment on grounds of sexual orientation because he was heterosexual and knew that the colleagues who he alleged had harassed him did not believe him to be gay.
