Daniel Dyal successfully defends teachers’ trade union before the ET in sex discrimination claim


In Revely v NASUWT Daniel Dyal successfully defended the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) in sex discrimination proceedings before the employment tribunal in Exeter.

The Claimant alleged that there was a discriminatory culture in the union led by one of its Assistant General Secretaries, to which the General Secretary turned a blind eye. The employment tribunal rejected all of the Claimant’s complaints and allegations. It found that key parts of her evidence had been disingenuous. It also found that the NASUWT, whose General Secretary is a woman, had a culture in which women could progress including to the very top levels of the organisation.

Daniel was instructed by Edward Cooper, Head of Employment, at Slater and Gordon.
