In HM Prison Service v Beart (No.2), the Court of Appeal holds that an employer cannot rely on its own second wrongful act to break the chain of causation for the first wrong and, thus, escape liability for damages for it. Liability for disability discrimination could not be avoided simply by dismissing the employee unfairly. Not only would this be unlawful, it would also be contrary to public policy.
