Publisher: Hart Publishing
Abstract:How far Community law extends in providing protection against discrimination on grounds of sex has been a recurring question. It has arisen in the context of part time workers, pregnant workers and, most recently, transsexual and homosexual workers. This article considers the role of Community law in the protection of homosexual workers against discrimination, particularly focusing on the judgment in Grant v South West Trains Ltd7 (“Grant”). Consideration is primarily given to the promotion and protection of equality under Community law; national and international law is also considered, but only in so far as they are directly relevant to the discussion of Community law.
