Smith v The George Hotel and others ET/2704562/10

disability discrimination | duty to make reasonable adjustments | knowledge of disability

The employer in this case was found to have discriminated against a disabled worker whom it dismissed after it was revealed that she is disabled. However, the tribunal reduced the compensation to zero because the employee's uncooperative behaviour was designed to prompt her dismissal so that she could bring a tribunal claim.
