||Employment Appeal Tribunal
Judge Burke QC, Mr I Ezekiel and Ms B Switzer
||23 June 2008
Employment - Discrimination against a woman - Act of discrimination - Allocation of extra working hours - Student employee working part-time in service station operated by employer - Employee complaining male colleagues receiving preferential treatment in respect of allocation of additional shifts during university vacations - Employment tribunal dismissing employee's sex discrimination claim - Whether tribunal erring.
Where the female employee complained that she had been discriminated against on grounds of sex on the basis that her male comparators were allocated more extra shifts, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that, in dismissing her claim, the employment tribunal had failed to give adequate reasons for its conclusions and had reached conclusions not open to it on the evidence. Accordingly, the employee's appeal was allowed and the matter was remitted to a differently constituted tribunal for fresh consideration.
