Sex Discrimination Act 1975 The law requires that all the employees on the ground should be treated equal. The employer must not discriminate if they male or female.

What is sex discrimination? The sex discrimination act makes it illegal for an employer to discriminate against a particular sex when: • Advertising for a job • Appointing an employee for a job • Promoting staff into better jobs • Deciding on the terms and conditions of the job • Offering employees opportunities for training and development

Exceptions to the Act This is some of the examples where the Act does not apply. These include: • Private clubs – for example some of the exclusive ‘gentlemen’s clubs’ in London can refuse to admit women • The armed forces- recruitment of women can be restricted to specific areas- although these restrictions have been relaxed recently • Actors- it would be unusual to find a female James Bond because although all the years there is been a male actor acting.

Transgendered edit

The Act as passed in 1975 makes no reference to transgendered, so the opening sentence is unfactual. I will amend it, as the Act was amended. Emeraude 17:02, 2 June 2007 (UTC) ffff —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:48, 5 April 2010 (UTC)Reply
