Brave trans person is the spark for better diversity and equality for all workers at Jaguar Land Rover

News

Following the landmark case of Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover , decided by the Birmingham employment tribunal in September 2020 the Equality and Human Rights Commission have used its investigatory powers to examine the position exposed by the case.

Robin Moira White of Old Square Chambers, who represented the claimant, Rose Taylor, at the ET instructed by Brethertons of Banbury said:

‘This case shows how one brave person standing up against discrimination can make a real difference for thousands of employees and workers across the spectrum of diversity.  All workers should feel safe to be who they really are at work.  It is especially pleasing to see some of the steps agreed as part of the result of the case incorporated into the plan agreed with the EHRC, the high level commitment from JLR and the monitoring process to ensure that real change occurs.  The case illustrates a number of useful workplace lessons on diversity, inclusion and the respectful treatment of individuals, whatever their protected characteristic.’
