Diana Woodward v Abbey National Plc

The Court of Appeal was not bound to follow the decision in Fadipe v Reed Nursing Personnel [2001] EWCA Civ 1885; [2005] ICR 1760 as that decision was inconsistent with the approach of the House of Lords in Relaxion Group Plc v Rhys-Harper [2003] UKHL 33; [2003] 4 All ER 1113. The protection of an employee from any detriment done to him in retaliation for his or her sex, race, disability or whistle-blowing was a concept that was common to the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, Race Relations Act 1976, Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and Employment Rights Act 1996 and the protection extended to events occurring after the employment had terminated.
