    Butler v Bush Hill Park Golf Club [1998] ET/2201138/98 (0 other reports)

An employer which made stereotypical assumptions that a single mother would not wish to be considered for a vacancy and that she would not be able to carry out the duties because of her domestic circumstances, unlawfully discriminated on grounds of sex, rules a London North employment tribunal (Chair: J Caborn) in Butler v Bush Hill Park Golf Club.

Helen Butler is a single mother with a child in her early teens.
