The Case

On an appeal from a decision of an employment tribunal that the appellant had not been discriminated against on grounds of sex, after an offer of an alternative position by her employer, on her return from maternity leave, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that the tribunal had been entitled to reach the factual conclusions that it had. Accordingly, the appellant's appeal was dismissed.
