Head teacher wins sexual orientation discrimination claim


Mon, 25 Mar 2019

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has ruled in favour of headteacher Matthew Aplin in his sex discrimination case against Tywyn Primary School which dismissed him for having sex with two 17 year-olds he met on a dating app. While police and his local authority employer decided he had committed no offence the school governors decided to dismiss him. The EAT found that he would have been treated differently were he a heterosexual male having sex with teenage girls, or a woman and teenage boys.
