Prowse-Piper v Anglian Windows Ltd and Others: EAT 15 Jun 2009

EAT SEX DISCRIMINATION: Pregnancy and discrimination
The Appellant was discriminated against on the grounds of her pregnancies. She was then made redundant in a way which constituted unfair dismissal. The Employment Tribunal held that the employer had paid only lip service to the possibility of finding her an alternative role. It failed to deal with the question whether this failure of the employer was itself a further act of discrimination. Remitted to the same Employment Tribunal to make findings on this point.
