Mother's Day, Father's Day and International Women's Day offers are possible


Mother's Day, Father's Day and International Women's Day offers

The purpose of the Equality Act is not to prevent all different treatment of men and women, only different treatment which is clearly unfair. When the Equality Act was reformed in 2008, the parliamentary Employment and Equality Committee decided that e.g. Mother's Day, Father's Day and International Women's Day offers are still possible, as long they are infrequent and of a low monetary value.

When considering the context and the legitimate objective, different treatment in these circumstances is not of the kind which should be seen as discriminatory towards the other gender.
