Dismissal for failure to return discriminatory

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Lewis Woolf Griptight Ltd v Corfield (25 March 1997) EOR75D, the EAT holds that it was sex discriminatory to use a woman's failure to return to work from maternity leave as the basis for dismissing her. The EAT also rules that by sending in a sickness certificate and asking whether she was entitled to SSP, the applicant was asserting that she remained an employee and not postponing her return to work.
