Part-timers first redundancy policy held not discriminatory

    Kidd v DRG (UK) Ltd [1985] IRLR 190 EAT (1 other report)

    • Kidd v DRG (UK) Ltd

      1 May 1985

      In Kidd v DRG (UK) Ltd [1985] IRLR 190 EAT, the EAT held that the Industrial Tribunal had not acted unreasonably in refusing to hold that the respondents' redundancy selection process, under which part-time workers were selected first, was indirectly discriminatory on grounds of marital status or sex.

Kidd v DRG (UK) Ltd (EAT, 8.2.84) EOR1A reaches the extraordinary conclusion that a redundancy procedure where part-time workers were dismissed first did not have a disproportionate impact upon married women compared with single women or upon women compared with men.
