    Jackson v North Western Road Car Company Ltd [1995] IT/55185/94 (0 other reports)

A woman who was refused training to acquire skills necessary to carry out a role for which there was a vacancy and who was subsequently dismissed at the end of her apprenticeship was unlawfully discriminated against because a man with her "characteristics and determination" would have been trained and given a trial with a view to taking up the post, rules a Liverpool industrial tribunal (Chair: M Homfray-Davies) in Jackson v North Western Road Car Company Ltd.

Ms Jackson began working for bus company North Western Road Car Company Ltd as a storekeeper on a YTS scheme in April 1990, immediately after leaving school.
