File No: EE/30/99
This dispute concerns a claim by Ms Mary Keane that she was discriminated against by CERT on the ground of gender - contrary to the provisions of section 2 and section 6 of the Employment Equality Act, 1977 - when she was required to wear a standard uniform to attend interviews on CERT premises. The claimant alleges that the standard female uniform is demeaning for female trainees, that she was too uncomfortable to wear the uniform to interviews and that she thereby missed out on job opportunities.
