Myers v (1) Slater and (2) Select Ticketing Systems  IT/24324/94 (0 other reports)
A divorced woman with children cannot complain under the Sex Discrimination Act that she has been discriminated against on grounds of her married status, a Bedford industrial tribunal (Chair: W B Carruthers) has ruled in Myers v (1) Slater and (2) Select Ticketing Systems.
Ms Myers was dismissed because she was unable to agree to a new work schedule which would have meant further time away from her own young son and the son of her partner, with whom she lived.
