Discrimination: Tribunal erred in awarding lifelong loss compensation

This report relates to 1 case(s)

  • expand disabled

    Jaddoo v Birmingham City Council [2004] All ER (D) 410 (Oct) EAT (0 other reports)

Key points

In Birmingham City Council v Jaddoo, the EAT holds:

  • In a case where substantial compensation for discrimination had been awarded, the employment tribunal had erred in failing to address the question of whether the employee had actually suffered financial loss from the discrimination, given the evidence of the claimant's many entrepreneurial activities.
  • The tribunal was wrong not to apply the guidance in Kingston upon Hull City Council v Dunnachie (No.3) [2003] IRLR 843 to the question of future loss.
