OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR OF EQUALITY INVESTIGATIONS
EMPLOYMENT EQUALITY ACT, 1998
EQUALITY OFFICER'S DECISION DEC-E2002-036
(Represented by Rosemary Connolly, Solicitors)
(Represented by IBEC)
File ref: EE/2000/103
Date of issue: 19 August 2002
This dispute concerns the preliminary issue of whether a claim by a complainant that he was discriminated against by his employer on the grounds of gender and sexual orientation, contrary to the provisions of the Employment Equality Act, 1998, is within the jurisdiction of the Director of Equality Investigations. As an associated determination of the Labour Court has already issued without naming the parties (see 2.2 below), there appears to be no reason to identify them in this decision.
