Disability discrimination: Travel by normal means of transport is "normal day-to-day activity"

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Abadeh v British Telecommunications plc 19.10.00 EAT 1124/99 the EAT holds that, for the purposes of the Disability Discrimination Act, the question of what constitutes a "normal day-to-day activity" must be addressed without regard to whether or not the activity is normal to the particular applicant. In this case the fact that the applicant did not live or work in London, or travel by aeroplane in connection with his work, did not mean that travelling by Underground or air was not a day-to-day activity for him.
