In this May HR Network event, we will be covering complex gender identities, and what lessons can be learnt from the Taylor v Jaguar Landrover case.

In a case which Stonewall described as a ‘landmark’ the Birmingham employment tribunal ruled that the protected characteristic of ‘gender reassignment’ included those transitioning to non-binary or gender fluid identities.

 

Counsel, for the Claimant in the case, Robin Moira White of Old Square Chambers (London and Bristol), examines the outcome of the case for trans individuals and for employers.  How far does the protection extend?  Has the protected characteristic now become ‘gender identity’?  What steps should employers take?  The case also has wider implications for employers, exposing as it did, a company which then had very poor commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Robin became the first barrister to transition from male to female in practice at the discrimination bar in 2011.  She practices in all aspects of employment and discrimination law and lectures regularly on the area, including transgender rights, in which she has appeared in a number of notable cases, and she acts for employers and employees.  Chambers & Partners has described her as ‘the go to lawyer for trans cases’. She will be publishing ‘A practical guide to transgender law’ in April 2021, written jointly with Nicola Newbegin of Old Square Chambers.
