Reynolds v CLFIS (UK) Ltd and others

Employment – Discrimination. The employee, an eminent doctor and insurance consultant, brought a claim alleging age discrimination against her employers after a consultancy agreement had been terminated. The employment tribunal (the tribunal) dismissed the claim. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in allowing the appeal, held that the tribunal had erred in law by only considering the mental process of a senior manager of the employers, but failing to examine the mental processes of other people, who had been significantly involved in the process leading to a decision to terminate the employee's consultancy agreement. The case was remitted to the tribunal for redetermination.
