Sturmey v Weymouth and Portland BC [EAT] 29.08.14 (Unreported)

The Employment Tribunal had not given sufficient reasons for its conclusions on the question of age discrimination. There was substantial material tending to indicate that the timing of its decision to dismiss the Claimant was wholly or partly because of her age and that she was treated less favourably in this respect than the Respondent would treat others. The Employment Tribunal did not mention this material or say in its reasons how it dealt with it. In a discrimination claim the Employment Tribunal’s reasons were required to address material of this kind.
