Gay staff face discrimination, says AUT

March 27, 1998

The employment rights of gay, lesbian and bisexual staff in universities and colleges are often neglected, despite the politically correct environment in which they work, the Association of University Teachers has warned. Such staff face a form of discrimination that is difficult to monitor and is therefore often ignored, according to a booklet published by the AUT today.

Copies of the booklet are available free from Adrienne Aziz, assistant general secretary, AUT.
