Reports relating to this case:

  • Sex Discrimination: Refusal of part-time hours after maternity leave justified

    30 December 2005

    In Brown v McAlpine & Co Ltd, the EAT holds that the tribunal had taken the correct approach in determining the discrimination issue, namely, by considering whether the decision not to offer job-sharing was justified at the time, not by considering whether the steps taken by the employer to find a job-share partner were reasonable.
