Exclusive agency excluding illnesses

Written by  Elite Introductions

1210_sw_DatingStigmaWatch recognises swift action taken by executive dating agencies Elite Introductions and Blue Label Life to revise their ‘Terms and Conditions’, which discriminated against people diagnosed with a mental illness.

Both companies included terms which required customers to confirm they did not have a ‘history of mental health issues or substance abuse’. These terms breached Sections 24 and 44 of the Disability Discrimination Act.

Once approached by StigmaWatch the directors of both companies were quick to act, revising their ‘Terms and Conditions’ to exclude the discriminatory statement.
