    Barry v Midland Bank plc [1995] IT/52983/93 (0 other reports)

In Barry v Midland Bank plc a London South industrial tribunal (Chair: E R Donnelly) rules that a voluntary severance payment scheme, which failed to take account any full-time service a part-time worker may have had, was not unlawfully indirectly discriminatory because most women worked full-time rather than part-time.

Mrs Barry was employed as a full-time clerk for 11 years, until she took maternity leave.
