This article examines the case of a British Airways employee that was heard by the Employment Tribunal and on appeal at the Employment Appeal Tribunal in the UK. The employee claimed that the working hours regulations adopted by the employer constituted a form of indirect discrimination against women employees and the EAT upheld her claim. The article examines the evidence in support of the claim that a ruling of this kind can lead to an evolution of legal concepts, resulting in a shift in the meaning of the existing terminology.
