    Fox v Betesh Fox & Co Solicitors [2001] ET/2402822/00 (0 other reports)

In Fox v Betesh Fox & Co Solicitors a Manchester employment tribunal (Chair: B J Doyle), in a majority decision, finds that the respondent firm of solicitors had objectively justified a requirement for legal secretaries to work full time. Consequently, it holds that it was lawful for the employer to refuse the applicant's request to return to her job on a part-time basis following maternity leave.

Mrs Fox was employed as a legal secretary.
