Reynolds v CLFIS (UK) Ltd and others [2015] EWCA Civ 439; [2015] WLR (D) 197

‘In a “tainted information case”, where the claimant claimed that she had been dismissed on grounds of age and the court’s focus had been on the potential prejudice of only one manager of the employer, not all of those who might have provided information bearing on any discrimination, the correct approach was to treat the conduct of the person supplying the information as separate from that of the person who acted on it, and the alternative “composite” approach was not appropriate to such a case.’
