    In Hall and others v Shorts Missile Systems Ltd (26 November 1996) EOR72A, the Court of Appeal in Northern Ireland upholds a finding that the employer had not acted unlawfully in removing length of service as a redundancy selection criterion because it would have had a disproportionate effect on recently-hired Roman Catholics, thereby undermining the company's affirmative action programme.
