In London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham v Jesuthasan the Court of Appeal has ruled that a male part-time worker employed in the public sector was entitled to rely on the 1994 decision of the House of Lords in ex parte Equal Opportunities Commission to claim a redundancy payment and compensation for unfair dismissal in respect of a dismissal occurring before the minimum hours per week qualifications were removed by the Employment Protection (Part-Time Employees) Regulations 1995.

Vasthiampili Jesuthasan was employed as a part-time teacher at Wormwood Scrubs Prison, working eight hours per week for three years.
