Knowledge of disability not required

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In HJ Heinz Co Ltd v Kenrick the EAT has held that in order to be said to have acted for a reason related to a disabled person's disability, it is not necessary that the employer knows of the disability.

In so ruling, this division of the EAT, under its new President, Mr Justice Lindsay, disagrees with the earlier decision in O'Neill v Symm & Co EOR79C.
