Sex discrimination: Assessing compensation in pregnancy dismissal cases

This report relates to 1 case(s)

A 100% assessment of the chances that a woman discharged from the armed forces on grounds of pregnancy would have resumed her career, had she been given maternity leave and an opportunity to return, is unusual and exceptional but not in itself "perverse", holds the EAT in Ministry of Defence v Hunt and others [1996] IRLR 139. Assessing as 100% the chances that the woman would have been in a position to return given the opportunity, and that she would have completed her engagement, is also not inherently perverse.
