Kirklees Law Centre wins landmark transgender discrimination case

Friday, March 21st 2014 A transgender woman from Halifax today won her claim of transgender discrimination in the provision of goods and services against a pub which had refused to allow her to use the ladies lavatories and had barred her when she complained. This is the first time that a case of transgender discrimination in the provision of goods and services has been heard in a British court. It highlights the need for businesses and other service providers to treat all of their customers fairly and equally, and demonstrates that there is legal protection for victims of discrimination.
