Disability discrimination: Governing body, not LEA, liable for teacher's DDA claim
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Murphy v Slough Borough Council and another  IRLR 382 CA (0 other reports)
In Murphy v Slough Borough Council and another, the Court of Appeal holds:
- The governing body of a community school with a delegated budget, not the local education authority (LEA), was the proper respondent to a complaint of disability discrimination brought by a teacher at the school, notwithstanding that the complainant's contract of employment was with the LEA. The liability of the governing body existed because the complaint related to the exercise by that body of its "employment powers".
