Sex discrimination: Shiftwork policy was unfair to woman with children

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Chief Constable of Avon & Somerset Constabulary v Chew 28.9.01 EAT 503/00, the EAT upholds an employment tribunal's decision that a female police officer who wanted to work part time suffered indirect sex discrimination because her childcare commitments meant she could not comply with a requirement that part-timers must work shifts in accordance with their department's duty roster patterns.
