Employment Expert comments on Forstater’s landmark success on discrimination and gender-critical views

Employment law expert Kim Crangle's comment has been featured in International Employment's article, 'Forstater’s win for gender-critical beliefs has broad, biting real-world implications, says lawyer' which has been linked below with kind permission.

The article addressed the landmark tribunal of Forstater (Maya Forstater v CGD Europe ) which successfully ruled that gender-critical views are a protected philosophical belief under the Equality Act.

Kim comments on the importance of employers seeking impartial advice when looking to balance the rights of employees with different and potentially conflicting beliefs, due to there being no cap on the amount of compensation awarded to claimants that successfully bring discrimination claims based on protected gender-critical beliefs.
