Working Facts

According to Human Rights experts:
It is (also) unlawful for employers to discriminate on grounds of sex against a worker, or subject the worker to harassment:
* In the terms of employment provided
* In the way they make opportunities for training, promotion or transfer, and other benefits/facilities available
* By refusing access to such opportunities or benefits/facilities

  1. The problem with all laws, especially civil laws relating to employment regulations, is that they're terribly expensive to enforce; unless you can get legal aid or you're prepared to bed a hotshot lawyer in return for help, which may be defeating the whole object.

    Charles Dickens's was a law reporter and wrote very cynically about the law in Bleak House:

    "The one great principle of the English law is to make business for itself. There is no other principle distinctly, certainly, and consistently maintained through all its narrow turnings. Viewed by this light it becomes a coherent scheme and not the monstrous maze the laity are apt to think it. Let them but once clearly perceive that its grand principle is to make business for itself at their expense, and surely they will cease to grumble."
