Shaw v CCL Ltd - Breach of sex discrimination law can give rise to a claim for constructive dismissal  EAT
CCL refused to allow Ms Shaw to work part-time on her return from maternity leave and she resigned in protest. She brought claims of sex discrimination and constructive unfair dismissal in the Leicester employment tribunal. She won her discrimination claim and was awarded some £18,000. However she lost her constructive unfair dismissal claim and appealed to the EAT (the underlying reason for her appeal was to head off an appeal by the employer against the part of the award which was for loss of earnings).
