You need to be careful. It is illegal under both the Sex Discrimination Act and the Equality Act to place a gender specific job advert.

Hmm, I thought about that when I saw this:

Black male dancer required

Surely that's wrong on two counts? Or are there exceptions for performers?

La Martinet, I believe they can make exceptions in the case of 'black male dancer required' but I think they may have to quote that it is an exempted role pursuant to whatever legislation allows exemptions to be made.

I can see where the need to be male might be relevant (in being a dancer. I'm working from the assumption that some parts are danced by men and some by women - but I'm aware that this isn't always the case even in dance - i.e. the all male Swan Lake of a few years' back), but can't see where the need to be black comes in.

If a dance co can specify skin colour as well as gender, can phil ask for a "busty blonde barmaid", or a "ripped, tall dark handsome barman"?

...if you press it, they will come.

Personally I'd rather see the latter....

All employers should read this article.
Referring to a woman as a lady could be misconstrued.

The new Equality Act and you
1 October 2010 Last updated at 12:53

Protection from harassment has been further extended so that the employer can be held liable for harassment by a third party, such as a customer or contractor” Has the world gone bonkers?

A one-off incident may amount to harassment, and so the victim need not have made the perpetrator aware that the conduct was unwanted.

The definition covers conduct which is "related to" a protected characteristic - a protected characteristic being sex, race, religious belief etc.

This means that there is no need for the particular employee's characteristics to be the reason for the unwanted conduct in order to trigger liability.

Sorry bigphil - under the OFT regulations you have to be truthful in the description of the product and, having visited the Crown on a few occassions I know that's not the case ;o)
