This report relates to 1 case(s)

Rose v GK Group Ltd ET/2802708/2011

harassment | disability discrimination | depression

In this case, a job applicant questioned at an interview by a line manager about his history of mental illness in an insensitive and hostile manner was found to have been harassed. However, the applicant, who was ultimately not appointed to the job, was found not to have been discriminated against otherwise because in no sense whatsoever was his illness a factor in the company's failure to offer him the job.
