This report relates to 1 case(s)
Ekpe v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis  IRLR 605 EAT (3 other reports)
In Ekpe v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis the EAT has overruled an employment tribunal that rejected a claim that a woman was disabled, even though she could not put rollers in her hair and could not always use her right hand to apply make-up, on grounds that neither was a "normal day-to-day activity" because they are activities carried out almost exclusively by women.
Mrs Ekpe was required by the Metropolitan Police to move to a job that involved keyboard duties.
