    Capeling v Secretary of State for Environment and Transport [1999] ET/1201848/98 (0 other reports)

A woman who was given an unfair reference by her line manager because she had brought earlier sex discrimination proceedings was unlawfully victimised, rules a Bedford employment tribunal (Chair: D Crome) in Capeling v Secretary of State for Environment and Transport.

Alison Capeling, an administrative officer with the Highways Agency at its Bedford office, was awarded almost £3,500 compensation in May 1998 following a tribunal ruling that she had been unlawfully discriminated against in respect of promotion arrangements (DCLD39K). Subsequently, she applied once again for promotion.
