    Withers v Perry Chain Co Ltd [1961] 1 WLR 1314 CA (0 other reports)

In Withers v Perry Chain Co Ltd [1961] 1 WLR 1314 CA, it was held that the employer was under no duty to dismiss or to refuse to employ an adult employee who wished to do a job merely because there might be some slight risk to the employee in doing the work.

In April 1956 the claimant, after five years in the same job, had to stop work because of dermatitis.
