Pool for comparison

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Clark v Novacold Ltd a Hull industrial tribunal (Chair: D J Latham) held that, in the case of an employee who had suffered a back injury at work which made him disabled, and who had been dismissed, the correct comparison when determining whether he had received less favourable treatment should be with employees on long-term sickness absence rather than non-disabled employees.

Mr Clark was employed in manual and physically-demanding jobs by Novacold Ltd, a frozen-food processing company, from July 1995 to January 1997.
