City of Edinburgh Council v Dickson

This report relates to 1 case(s)

unfair dismissal | disability discrimination | diabetes

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has upheld an employment tribunal decision that an employee was unfairly dismissed for viewing pornography at work during a “hypoglycaemic episode” brought on by diabetes when he behaved wholly out of character and after which he had no recollection of what he had done. However, it overturned the tribunal decision that the dismissal amounted to disability discrimination.
