*Reynolds v CLFIS (UK) Ltd

Employment – Discrimination. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the defendant company's appeal against a decision of the Employment Appeal Tribunal allowing the claimant's appeal against the dismissal of her claim for age discrimination. Consideration was given to the legal basis on which a remedy should be available in circumstances where an act which was detrimental to a claimant was done by an employee who was innocent of any discriminatory motivation but who had been influenced by information supplied, or views expressed by another employee whose motivation was, or was said to have been, discriminatory.
