    Sharratt v Barclays Bank plc [1997] ET/2404456/97 (0 other reports)

In Sharratt v Barclays Bank plc a Manchester employment tribunal (Chair: P J Russell) holds that it was not sex discriminatory to withdraw a company car allowance from a woman on maternity leave.

Barclays operates a discretionary company scheme which offers eligible employees two options: they can select a car for business and private use from a specific range of models or they can receive a cash allowance.
