    Evans v Oaklands Nursing Home Group Ltd EAT/331/99 (0 other reports)

In Evans v Oaklands Nursing Home Group Ltd 13.12.99 EAT 331/99, the EAT sets aside an employment tribunal's award of £1,500 compensation for injury to feelings under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 because the tribunal erroneously had regard to the respondent's size and resources. These had to be irrelevant given that what needed to be quantified was a particular compensatory award, which depended on a case being made for it by the complainant.
