In Pemberton v Inwood [2018] ICR 1291 (CA) the Court of Appeal updated the guidance on the correct approach to be taken to harassment claims which was given in Richmond Pharmacology v Dhaliwal [2009] ICR 724 in light of the enactment of the Equality Act 2010. The Court of Appeal also clarified (a) the breadth of the provisions of the Equality Act 2010 giving Employment Tribunals jurisdiction over ‘qualifications bodies’ and (b) the scope of the exemptions for organised religions set out in Schedule 9 of the Act. Matthew Sheridan acted successfully for Bishop Inwood (led by Thomas Linden QC). If you would like to read an article about the case which was published in ELA Briefing and which Matthew co-authored together with Peter Frost (Partner, Herbert Smith Freehills) and Paul Stevenson (Senior Advisory Lawyer at the Church Commissioners), please click here.
