Unfair Discrimination Against Transsexuals
Johanette Rheeder

Employees are increasingly more and more prepared to stand up to unfair employers and take them on based on unfair discrimination. This year was no exception. Two particular cases dealt with discrimination against transsexuals in the work environment. The first was that of Atkins / Datacentrix (Pty) Ltd (2009) 18 LC 8.29.3 and [2010] 4 BLLR 351 (LC). The rejection of the arguments presented by this employer confirms the fact that unfair discrimination based on gender and sexual orientation will not be tolerated by our courts.
