Disability discrimination: Singling out of disabled employee at award ceremony constituted discrimination

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Key Points

  • In Jenkins v Legoland Windsor Park Ltd, the EAT holds that an individual with a disability was discriminated against on the grounds of his disability when, as part of a long service award ceremony, his employer presented him with a model that depicted his disability, and failed to show him in a work-related environment, in circumstances where 55 of the other 58 models presented to fellow workers did reflect an aspect of their work environment.
  • A reasonable employee in the complainant's position would, or might well, take the view that he had been subjected to a detriment by the way in which he had been singled out from his colleagues, at a substantial presentation ceremony, to be identified by his disability.
