The article highlights several court cases concerning personnel management in Great Britain. In English v. Thomas Sanderson case, the court decided that English had been harassed on the grounds of sexual orientation. A tribunal agreed in the case Sharma v. Millbrook Beds that the employees over 50 were treated less favourable and the company could not justify this discrimination. However, the case of the Dorset County Council v. Omenaca-Labarta was dismissed as a result of a reduced need for staff, a part-time teacher on a fixed-term contract.
