Quigley v London Borough of Lewisham ET/2300679/09

disability discrimination | harassment | duty to make reasonable adjustments

The employment tribunal in this case made the unusual finding that a job applicant was subjected to harassment when he was accidentally sent an internal email that he felt was dismissive of his application. In addition, the decision provides a good example of a very simple reasonable adjustment that the employer should have made: giving the applicant a few extra minutes to prepare for his interview.
