    The South Yorkshire Pensions Authority v Burns EAT/0004/05 (0 other reports)

shortlisting | opportunity for disabled candidate to clarify application form

In The South Yorkshire Pensions Authority v Burns EAT/0004/05, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that an employment tribunal misdirected itself in inferring disability discrimination where the employer, after shortlisting, had the opportunity to clarify any omissions or deficiencies on a disabled applicant's application form and add him to the shortlist.

Mr Burns, a disabled person, applied for a job but was not shortlisted as he did not fulfil the six essential job criteria.
