Geller and another v Yeshurun Hebrew Congregation

Employment – Sex discrimination. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing an appeal against the dismissal of a sex discrimination claim, held that the employment tribunal (the tribunal) had erred in its approach to the question of subconscious discrimination by considering the subjective state of mind of the employer's representative. It held that the tribunal's decision in relation to two limbs of the direct discrimination claim, namely that the employer had discriminated against the first employee by failing to acknowledge her and that it had made unlawful deductions from her wages, could not stand. The case was remitted to the tribunal.
