Campaigner was discriminated against over gender critical beliefs
Law Society Gazette by Michael Cross
A ‘gender-critical’ campaigner suffered direct discrimination by a non-governmental organisation when it decided not to offer her a contract of employment, an employment tribunal ruled today in a high-profile case. Employment experts said the ruling will clarify the law on what amounts to a protected belief.
The claim in Maya Forstater v CGD Europe and others, was brought by Maya Forstater following the Employment Appeal Tribunal’s ruling last year that her belief in immutable biological sex was protected by the Equality Act 2010.
