It is unlawful to discriminate against a male or female because of their gender.

Such discrimination can take place by way of unpleasant comments and/or inappropriate physical conduct towards individuals which is considered by a tribunal or court would not have taken place had the individual been a member of the opposite sex.

Such conduct can be considered by the tribunals and the courts as harassment if it is believed that the behaviour has had the effect of violating the individual’s dignity or created an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for them.

Who can be held accountable for sex discrimination?

An employer, public body, service provider or association can be held accountable for the conduct of their employees which gives rise to claims against these businesses or organisations.

The protection afforded by the Equality Act applies to every stage of the employment relationship i.e. advertising vacancies, recruitment, promotion, training and other opportunities, and dismissal.

This protection also extends to discrimination in the course of an individual’s day to day life as a consumer or service user.

Commonly, cases involving sex discrimination include claims for direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, harassment and/or victimisation.

Our employment law and discrimination teams are committed to advising and representing clients nationwide, in all manner of employment and civil disputes which involve sex discrimination and harassment.

If you believe that you have been the victim of discrimination as a result of your gender and would like to speak to a member of our team call us on 0203 816 9302 or complete our online enquiry form without delay.
