In Carpenter v Business Link London (The City, Hackney & Islington) Ltd a Stratford employment tribunal (Chair: V K Gay) holds that dismissal for a menopausal-related reason does not constitute automatic sex discrimination, analogous to pregnancy, and therefore not requiring a comparator.

Ms Carpenter was dismissed on grounds of redundancy.
