The article discusses several cases in Great Britain concerning workplace discrimination and suspensions. A transsexual employee brought sex discrimination claims against his employer but they were rejected because he has not been treated less favourably. In another case, the court accepted failure to follow instructions on suspension would be breach of mutual trust and confidence. An interim injunction was issued against an employee's suspension. Another case deals with a discrimination complaint related to a dismissal.
