Employment Discrimination against a woman. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the employer Ministry of Defence's appeal against the Employment Appeal Tribunal remitting a claim for direct discrimination on the ground of sex rather than substituting its own finding in place of that of the tribunal. However, in the circumstances, it could not be said that the EAT had been plainly and unarguably right in not remitting the matter of indirect discrimination to the tribunal. Consequently, the indirect discrimination claim would also be remitted to the tribunal.
