    Saxena v HM Prison Service [1998] ET/1804859/97 (0 other reports)

A part-time female medical practitioner at a prison who was dismissed following a reorganisation because she could not comply with a full-time working requirement, was not indirectly discriminated against on grounds of sex, rules a Leeds employment tribunal (Chair: C T Grazin) in Saxena v HM Prison Service. A higher proportion of women could comply with the requirement than men.
