Thank you question.
You can't be found in breach of a policy that doesn't exist so yes you have a defence to the charge. They can't just do as they wish. They may be entitled to raise something under the general law, , equality or discrimination legislation in certain cases but they can't rely on some "policy" that is only invented after the fact.
An employer or other organisation would find itself in some difficulty trying to rely on something that didn't exist at the relevant time.
Happy to discuss further.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited time.
