Occupational requirement (OR)

The Act does not apply when the employer can show that there is an occupational requirement to do with the nature or context of the work which means they need to recruit someone of a certain sex, as long as they can show it is a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim.

The occupational requirement applies only to direct discrimination in recruitment, promotion, transfer and training and not to the way in which an employer affords access to benefits, facilities or services.

Examples of when the occupational requirement may apply include reasons of decency or privacy, for instance where the job involves physical contact or people may be undressing (say, in a changing room). Or the job may involve providing personal services such as rape counsellors.
Religious requirement

Discrimination because of sex is also lawful in relation to employment for the purposes of an organised religion. Organised religion is not defined in the Act but case law has established that it should be applied very narrowly.

In order to satisfy the religious requirement the employer will have to show that it is directed to comply with the doctrines of the religion; or avoids conflict with the strongly held religious convictions of the religion’s followers.
