Disability discrimination: Dismissal of deaf employee discriminatory and unfair
This report relates to 1 case(s)
Taylor v OCS Group Ltd  All ER (D) 344 (May) EAT (0 other reports)
In OCS Group Ltd v Taylor 3.6.05, EAT/0803/04/MAA, the EAT holds:
- The employment tribunal was correct to find that a profoundly deaf employee, unable to participate fully in his disciplinary hearing or defend himself against allegations of misconduct, had been unfairly dismissed.
- The employment tribunal had correctly applied the judgment in the EAT case Whitbread & Co Plc v Mills  IRLR 501, which deals with the distinction between an internal review and a full disciplinary re-hearing and the consequences of each.
