ABSTRACT
The article discusses the sex discrimination case Primmer versus Mayflower Kebabs Ltd. in Great Britain. The case surfaced following constant jibes from the Mayflower management regarding Sarah Primmer's red hair. The tribunal decided the remarks amounted to sexual harassment and that Primmer had been unfairly dismissed. The case did not create new discrimination grounds - Primmer's sex was the reason she was harassed and the fact that her hair was ginger was incidental, even though it was this aspect of her appearance that was targeted by the bullying.
