    Roberts and Longstaffe v British Telecommunications plc [1995] IT/37399/94 (0 other reports)

In Roberts and Longstaffe v British Telecommunications plc a Southampton industrial tribunal (Chair: I A Edwards) rules that two BT employees whose jobshare applications were rejected were unlawfully discriminated against and recommends that both should be allowed to jobshare within a month of its decision.

Both women were employed full time in BT's customer service department in Bournemouth. For business reasons, it became necessary in 1992 to extend the working hours of the department to include Saturday opening and longer week days.
