Irish trans woman wins £30,000 for discrimination

An Irish trans woman has been awarded 35,000 euros (£30,000) after an equality tribunal ruled she was discriminated against on the grounds of gender and disability.

Louise Hannon claims that her employer, First Direct Logistics Limited, discriminated against her after she revealed she was transitioning.

She claimed that the atmosphere in her office became so bad, she was constructively dismissed.

The equality tribunal concluded that transsexualism is a recognised medical condition and judged that she had been discriminated against.
