Black & Anor v Wilkinson - justification must involve convincing and weighty reasons
Justification for indirect discrimination must involve convincing and weighty reasons
Not an employment law case, but nonetheless an important decision on the ongoing tussle between respect for religious views and non-discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. For an earlier case - with a similar outcome in the County Court - see Hall & Anor v Bull & Anor, Bristol CC 4th January 2011. However, with this decision comes Court of Appeal authority on the matter.
