Halfpenny v IGE Medical Systems Ltd  IT/6910/96 (0 other reports)
A refusal to hold a woman's job open for her beyond her statutory maternity leave, extended by four weeks on medical grounds, was not unlawful sex discrimination, rules a Manchester industrial tribunal (Chair: D M Kloss) in Halfpenny v IGE Medical Systems Ltd.
Mrs Halfpenny, who was employed in the sales office of the respondent's UK operation, failed to return to work at the end of her period of maternity leave.
