Abadeh v British Telecommunications plc [2001] IRLR 23 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Disability discrimination: Travel by normal means of transport is "normal day-to-day activity"

    Date:
    1 December 2000

    In Abadeh v British Telecommunications plc the EAT holds that, for the purposes of the Disability Discrimination Act, the question of what constitutes a "normal day-to-day activity" must be addressed without regard to whether or not the activity is normal to the particular applicant.

  • Effect of successful medical treatment

    Date:
    1 December 2000

    The EAT has ruled in Abadeh v British Telecommunications plc that the deduced effects provisions of the definition of disability, requiring the effects of medical treatment to be disregarded in determining whether an applicant is disabled, apply only where the treatment is continuing and do not apply where it has been successful.
