Doesn’t always apply in the police force as positive action is often used.
Police were taken to court and lost what was called a landmark ruling.
A white heterosexual male took the Police to court which found,
“An employment tribunal found Cheshire Police had discriminated against the 25-year-old on the grounds of sexual orientation, race and sex. It ruled that the constabulary used positive action – where employers take steps to boost the diversity of their workforce – in a discriminatory way.”
Where do you start and finish with box ticking to represent the population in a job like the police. Should women have about 50% representation. Travellers, disabled, criminals etc etc.
It’s be best applicant capable of doing the thankless police job that should be appointed.
