    Taylor v Freemans Mail Order [1995] IT/28575/94 (0 other reports)

A male manager in a predominantly female organisation was selected for redundancy by a female manager who chose to retain women in preference to men because she thought that they would "better fit into the organisation in its new form", holds a Sheffield industrial tribunal (Chair: T P Ryan) in Taylor v Freemans Mail Order.

Mr Taylor was employed by Freemans Mail Order, a predominantly female employer, as an assistant manager in the Customer Service Division at its Sheffield site.
