Employment tribunal - Sex discrimination - Unfair dismissal - Employee bringing proceedings against employer alleging sex discrimination and unfair dismissal - Employment tribunal finding causal connection between complaint of sex discrimination and dismissal - Whether tribunal giving adequate reasons for decision.
There was a particular need for an adequately reasoned judgment in discrimination cases. Mere acceptance of the account of one party in preference to another would be insufficient in a hotly contested case and a tribunal had to explain why it preferred one account to another. In the instant case, the employment tribunal had given inadequate reasons for its decision and the matter would be remitted to a fresh tribunal for consideration and decision.
