This case is a useful early example, along with McGraw v London Ambulance Service NHS Trust ET/3301865/11, of how employment tribunals are approaching the new concept of "discrimination arising from disability" under the Equality Act 2010. This claimant succeeded in showing that his employer's requirement that he move to a new contract was unfavourable treatment that arose in consequence of his disability and the employer's actions were not justified.
