An employer which assumed that an applicant for a Madrid-based job would "lack commitment" because his wife was unwilling to relocate from the UK, unlawfully discriminated on grounds of marital status when it rejected his application, holds a London South employment tribunal (Chair: I S Lamb) in Cumandala v Bloomberg Financial Markets.
