    Sanderson v BAA plc [1998] ET/3202717/97 (0 other reports)

A requirement that employees work a shift system involving early morning working did not indirectly discriminate against a woman with two young children, since it could not be shown that the requirement had a disproportionate impact on women, holds a Bury St Edmunds employment tribunal (Chair: B G Mitchell) in Sanderson v BAA plc.

Mrs Sanderson was one of 16 part-time security guards employed at Stansted airport.
