Stephens v Kingston University Higher Education Corporation UKEAT/0288/13/GE

Hudson v Department for Work and Pensions UKEAT/0397/11/SM
Appeal against a refusal by the ET to make a declaration that the claimant was permanently employed. Appeal allowed.
The Manchester College v Cocliff UKEAT/0035/10/CEA
Appeal against decision by the Employment Tribunal that the claimant, who had a fixed term contract, had been treated less favourably than a comparable permanent worker. The EAT found that the Tribunal had erred by failing properly to consider the reason for less favourable treatment: they erred in deciding that, because the less favourable terms had not been justified, the reason for such terms was that the claimant was a fixed-term worker.
