This report relates to 1 case(s)

Key points

In Hill v Clacton Family Trust Ltd [2005] EWCA Civ 1456, the Court of Appeal holds:

  • An employment tribunal was entitled to find that an employee had not been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder at the time of her dismissal, and that she was not a disabled person within the meaning of the DDA. The tribunal had properly given weight to the question of whether or not the employee had actually experienced the trauma claimed, and had been entitled, in light of all the medical and other evidence, to conclude that she had not.
