Quick Reference

Is a term for prejudice against people with red hair. It gained popularity in 2007 owing to a successful employment tribunal case taken by Sarah Primmer, who was subject to repeated jibes at work about her hair colour. However, the substance of the case was a complaint of sexual harassment by male managers, which happened to focus on the colour of her hair. There is no right in law for red-haired people, per se, not to suffer discrimination.

Subjects: Human Resource Management.
