    Stoke-on-Trent Community Transport v Cresswell EAT/359/93 (0 other reports)

In Stoke-on-Trent Community Transport v Cresswell the EAT upholds an industrial tribunal's decision that the dismissal of a woman for wearing trousers at work amounted to sex discrimination, because male employees were not subject to any rules or disciplinary sanctions in respect of their appearance.

Stoke-on-Trent Community Transport is a charitable organisation providing transport facilities for elderly and handicapped people.
