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.
Until 2007 the King's Law Journal was known as the King's College Law Journal. It was established in 1990 as a legal periodical publishing scholarly and authoritative Articles, Notes and Reports on legal issues of current importance to both academic research and legal practice. It has a national and international readership, and publishes refereed contributions from authors across the United Kingdom, from continental Europe and further afield (particularly Commonwealth countries and USA). The journal includes a Reviews section containing critical notices of recently published books.
