    Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council v Brown [1986] IRLR 432 EAT (0 other reports)

In Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council v Brown (21.7.86) EOR10B, the EAT rules that a woman who is selected for redundancy on ground of being pregnant is not dismissed on ground of pregnancy. They also hold that it was fair to select the respondent for redundancy and not offer alternative employment because she was pregnant.
