Stevenson v JM Skinner & Co EAT/0584/07

This report relates to 1 case(s)

sex discrimination | pregnancy | risk assessment

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that the requirement to assess the safety risks to a pregnant employee is met by recording the risks then passing on the findings of the assessment orally to the employee.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers to carry out a risk assessment in respect of a new or expectant mother where the work is of a kind that could involve risk by reason of her condition.
