    Equal Opportunities Commission v (1) Storey and Bloor (2) JES Manufacturing Co [1994] IT/58581/93 (0 other reports)

An employer who told the Employment Service that he wanted job vacancies to be filled by women "because of their nimble fingers", did not attempt to procure an unlawful act, according to a Birmingham industrial tribunal (Chair: A C Tickle) in Equal Opportunities Commission v (1) Storey and Bloor (2) JES Manufacturing Co. When the conversation took place the vacancies had already been filled.
