    Flynn v The Governors of St Peters C of E Combined School [1996] IT/3248/96 (0 other reports)

The failure to shortlist the only male applicant out of a substantial number of applicants for a post in a school where almost all the staff were female was unlawful sex discrimination, rules a Reading industrial tribunal (Chair: J G Hollow) in Flynn v The Governors of St Peters C of E Combined School.

Mr Flynn was the only man out of 31 applicants for the post of school welfare officer.
