Baddeley v Mehta t/a Supascoop  IT/46041/94 (0 other reports)
In Baddeley v Mehta t/a Supascoop, an industrial tribunal holds that a new right to claim unfair dismissal on grounds of health and safety does not apply to an employee who had resigned.
Ms Baddeley, a 5'2" and slightly-built sales assistant, alleged that her employer, Supascoop, had required her to perform duties which were beyond her physical capacity and which caused her physical and mental stress.
