A Common Sense Tribunal Judgement

A Common Sense Tribunal Judgement

Many employers, including those of domestic staff, have long held the view that some employment tribunal judgements have taken perceived correctness a step too far.

It is refreshing therefore to see that this trend does have a limit!

At a recent hearing, a teenage female hairdresser took her employers to an employment tribunal claiming that being told “to grow up” constituted age discrimination and constructive dismissal. Following another comment to “pull herself together” she quit her job and left the salon.

However the tribunal ruled that being told to “grow up” does not constitute age discrimination at work.

Her case was dismissed the tribunal found employment tribunal dismissed her case after it found the remarks could be said to anyone — especially older workers.

In its ruling, the tribunal said that the two expressions “in themselves” were unrelated to age “and can be said to anyone and particularly to someone older who is acting in a childish way.”
