London Borough of Greenwich v Robinson EAT/745/94 (0 other reports)
In London Borough of Greenwich v Robinson the EAT has overruled the finding of an industrial tribunal that it was indirectly discriminatory against women to treat absence resulting from IVF treatment as part of an employee's sickness record for redundancy selection purposes.
Amy Robinson was selected for redundancy because she had the worst sickness record of the staff in her unit.
