Rev. J. Gould v Trustees of St John’s Downshire Hill  UKEAT 0115/17
Claimant’s case can proceed on basis of marital discrimination
In this case, Rev Gould contended that his treatment engaged section 8 Equality Act 2010 on the basis that he was treated less favourably because he was married and had marital difficulties. His pleaded case focused on marriage and the difficulties he had within the status of marriage and that was the reason for his treatment.
