British Airways (European Operations at Gatwick) Ltd v Moore and Botterill [2000] IRLR 296 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Pregnant women entitled to allowances

    Date:
    1 June 2000

    In British Airways (European Operations at Gatwick) v Moore the EAT has held that alternative work offered to pregnant cabin crew was not suitable because it did not compensate them for loss of flying allowances to which they were entitled when they were working normally.

  • Suspension on maternity grounds: Alternative work offered to employees suspended on maternity grounds was unsuitable

    Date:
    15 April 2000

    Pregnant cabin crew who volunteered for ground duties to which they were deployed were not offered "suitable alternative work" within the meaning of s.67(2) of the Employment Rights Act 1996, because the terms and conditions applicable to that alternative work were substantially less favourable than the corresponding terms and conditions for their normal work, holds the EAT in British Airways (European Operations at Gatwick) Ltd v Moore and another.
