Shift arrangements indirectly discriminatory

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In London Underground Ltd v Edwards (No.2) (13 January 1997), the EAT upholds a finding that a rostering system requiring an early morning start had an adverse impact on women, even though only one of 21 women train drivers positively complained about the arrangements. The industrial tribunal was entitled to have regard to its common knowledge about the proportionately larger number of women than men in employment with primary childcare responsibilities.
