    Greater Glasgow Health Board v Carey [1987] IRLR 484 EAT (0 other reports)

In Greater Glasgow Health Board v Carey (23.2.87) EOR14D, the EAT overrules an industrial tribunal's finding that a requirement that a health visitor work part-time over five days rather than work half a week was unjustifiable indirect discrimination against women. Five-day working, says the EAT, was essential to enable the work of health visitor to be carried out effectively.
