Sex Discrimination

It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate on the basis of sex against an employee if the reason is connected to or because of your sex.  Examples of this could be:

  • refused employment on the basis of your sex 
  • offered employment on less favourable terms on the basis of your sex
  • denied promotion, training and other benefits on the basis of your sex
  • not afforded the same wages or benefits on the basis of your sex
  • subjected to a detriment on the basis of your sex
  • dismissed on the basis of your sex
  • subjected to unwanted sexual conduct,
  • not allowed part time working due to your sex and having caring commitments

To bring a claim of sex discrimination, you will need to demonstrate that you are or were an employee or a worker, or were applying for a job as an employee or worker.  There is no qualifying period of employment required to bring a claim for discrimination. 

To present a claim, you must contact ACAS and complete Early Conciliation within three months starting from the date of the last act of discrimination.
