Understandably the pandemic has dominated the people agenda within many businesses of late. In the meantime, there have been some significant case law developments in the diversity, equality and inclusion arena.

During this session we update you on the following cases and discuss the actions HR professionals must take as a result of these decisions:

  • Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover – The protection provided under the Equality Act 2010 in respect of gender reassignment extends to individuals who are gender fluid and non-binary.
  • Forstater v CGD Europe & Others – A belief that there are only two biological sexes and that people cannot change their sex is a philosophical belief which is protected under the Equality Act 2010.
  • Allay (UK) Limited v Gehlen – Equality and diversity training must be more than a tick box exercise if the reasonable steps defence to discrimination is to be established.
