Knowledge of cause of impairment not necessary

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In College of Ripon and York St John v Hobbs, the EAT holds that an employment tribunal was correct in its conclusion that the applicant suffered from a physical impairment, and that it was not necessary for them to know precisely what underlying disease or trauma had caused the impairment.

Dr Hobbs suffered various symptoms which were set out in the medical report relied upon by the employment tribunal.
