Tribunal win for beauty therapist unable to arrange weekend childcare.

By December 12, 2016Uncategorized

The therapist was awarded £18,399 in unfair dismissal case following changes to her flexible working arrangements.  Emma had almost 10 years’ service and had in place a flexible working arrangement not work on weekends due to childcare needs.  However, in early 2016 the company insisted that she start working weekends.  She raised a grievance which the tribunal did not believe was investigated properly, and she was subsequently made redundant.  The tribunal found that she was unfairly dismissed and suffered sex discrimination.
