    In Cornelius v University College of Swansea (10.2.87) EOR13D, the Court of Appeal holds that a complainant under s.4 of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 (SDA) must not only show that she was victimised because she brought proceedings against her employer, but she must also show that the basis for the victimisation was that those proceedings were brought under the SDA.

  • Victimisation protection narrowly construed

    Type:
    Law reports

    In Aziz v Trinity Street Taxis Ltd and others (20.5.86) EOR10A, the EAT holds that in order to determine whether an employee has been victimised by reason of an activity protected by the statute, that the activity took place in a protected context must be ignored; the correct question is whether another person who acted in a similar way outside the context of a protected activity would be treated similarly.
