    McDougall v Richmond Adult Community College [2007] IRLR 771 EAT (0 other reports)

disability discrimination | meaning of disability

In McDougall v Richmond Adult Community College EAT/0589/06, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that, in determining whether a condition is likely to recur for the purposes of determining if it is long term, it is relevant to consider matters occurring up to the date of the hearing, not just the claimant's condition at the time the tort was committed.

In order to bring a claim under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, an individual must have a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on his or her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
