Discrimination Case Law

Webb v EMO Air Cargo (UK) Ltd (14 July 1994)

In addition to restating that there is no requirement for a comparator in order to evidence ‘unfavourable treatment’ in cases of discrimination relating to pregnancy and maternity (as in Dekker v VJV, 1993) this case also made crystal clear that pregnancy is not an illness, and that a pregnant woman is not the same as a sick man.
