In Hacking & Paterson and another v Wilson EAT/0054/09, the EAT held that, where a woman employed as a property manager claimed indirect sex discrimination following the refusal of her flexible working request on her return from maternity leave, the pool for comparison should exclude those property managers with no interest in flexible working.
