Sohrabi-Karyani v Brighton and Hove Bus and Coach Company Ltd ET/2302706/2015
disability discrimination | discrimination arising from disability | unfair dismissal
This employment tribunal held that a bus company's decision to dismiss a disabled employee amounted to discrimination arising from disability. The justification defence failed because the tribunal found that there were a number of other options available that would have amounted to a less discriminatory means of achieving a safe place of work.
