Employment - Discrimination against a woman - Act of discrimination - Employee receiving reference with unflattering phrases - Employee claiming phrases gender specific - Employment tribunal ruling phrases not gender specific - Whether tribunal in error.
An employment tribunal had not erred in law by finding that phrases such as 'uncontained anxiety', 'over-identification', 'having conspiracy theories', 'impulsiveness' and 'lack of stability' were not gender-specific, and thus the applicant employee could not base a claim for sex discrimination on the use of those phrases in a reference.
