    Foster v Cardiff University EAT/0422/12 (0 other reports)

In DLA Piper's case of the week, Foster v Cardiff University, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) considered the issue of reasonable adjustments for an academic with chronic fatigue syndrome and how stress and anxiety affect that condition.


The claimant, a lecturer, appealed to the EAT against the employment tribunal's dismissal of her complaints of disability discrimination and harassment.
