Russell v Holden & Co LLP

Employment – Discrimination. The employment tribunal upheld two sex discrimination claims in respect of the employer not accepting a properly notified return date at the end of the employee's maternity leave and taking into account pregnancy-related illnesses in determining an attendance record. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in dismissing the employer's appeal, held that the tribunal had been entitled to determine both issues, in the sense that the complaints and claims had been before it. Further, there was evidence before the tribunal capable of sustaining its conclusion and there was no irregularity in its judgment.
