    Williams v Channel 5 Engineering Services [1997] IT/2302136/97 (0 other reports)

In Williams v Channel 5 Engineering Services Ltd a London South industrial tribunal (Chair: J Gilbert) found that an employer's failure to make adjustments to a training course to enable a deaf job applicant to complete it was an act of discrimination on the grounds of disability.

Christian Williams, who is profoundly deaf, applied for a job as a Channel 5 re-tuner.
