Refusal to grant part-time work justified

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Eley v Huntleigh Diagnostics Ltd the EAT has upheld a finding that a requirement that a receptionist continue working full time following her return from maternity leave was objectively justified on grounds of customer continuity.

Claire Eley was employed as a full-time receptionist by an ultrasound-instrument manufacturer, which does its business over the telephone.
