• The treatment complained of must be linked to a protected characteristic of an individual. The Court found that there was no reason to restrict the meaning of a person (under S.13) to an individual and the Interpretation Act 1978 was applied so that it covered both an individual and a corporation.

    The treatment can be given by any person (natural or legal) and there is no requirement that the person with the protected characteristic is the same person who suffers the detriment.
