Sex discrimination Employment. Employment Appeal Tribunal: The employee's appeal to the Employment Appeal Tribunal was dismissed where there was a total absence of primary facts from which an inference could properly be drawn that the employer knew of the protected acts from which it was alleged that the victimisation under of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 resulted. In those circumstances, consideration of the burden of proof issues was unnecessary.
