O'Neill v Buckinghamshire County Council

This report relates to 1 case(s)

pregnancy | risk assessment | sex discrimination

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has upheld an employment tribunal finding that the employer had not failed to carry out a risk assessment on the basis that the requirement to carry out an assessment did not apply to the employee's work. There is no general obligation to carry out a risk assessment on pregnant employees so that a failure to do so amounts to discrimination per se.
