  1. Ms C v The Governing Bod of Warren School & Suffolk County Council ET/3401301/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that the requirement that a female teacher who had been sexually assaulted by a pupil continue to work in the same school constituted indirect discrimination, and awarded her £52,493 (Employment Tribunal judgment, our analysis)

  3. Ms P Sedze v Bulb Interiors Ltd ET/3347066/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that a female employee being made redundant whilst she was on maternity was not because of her period of maternity leave (or childcare commitments) but because the employer had decided to no longer pursue telesales (her responsibility (Employment Tribunal judgment)

  7.

  8. Miss Gooding v The Felixstowe Dock and Railway Company Limited ET/3401365/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that the redundancy of a female employee’s job whilst she was on maternity leave constituted discrimination, and that the female employee was constructively dismissed when she resigned as a result (Employment Tribunal judgment)
