Will Young successfully resists sex discrimination EAT appeal
Will Young acted for the Claimant in successfully resisting an appeal by an employer against a finding that it had unfairly dismissed and discriminated against her (in the case of Rojas v Market One Ltd).
The Employment Tribunal (before whom Will appeared for the Claimant in 2011) decided that the Claimant’s dismissal was as a result of her inability to work full time from the office, which she could not do due to child care responsibilities. This was held to amount to unfair dismissal and sex discrimination.
On appear to the Employment Appeal Tribunal, the finding that the dismissal amounted to direct discrimination was overturned, but the findings that the dismissal was unfair and amounted to indirect discrimination were upheld.
