The removal of a pregnant probationer constable from the second stage of her training and transferring her to clerical duties, purportedly to protect her health and safety but without carrying out any risk assessment, was unlawful sex discrimination, holds a Bury St Edmunds employment tribunal (Chair: B G Mitchell) in Tapp v The Chief Constable of Suffolk Constabulary.

Ms Tapp was appointed as a probationer constable in October 1996.
