    Samuels v Wesleyan Assurance Society [1997] IT/2100703/97 (0 other reports)

In Samuels v Wesleyan Assurance Society the employment tribunal held that an employer was not justified in dismissing a disabled employee on sick leave when he had expressed a firm intention to return to work in a very short time.

Mr Samuels, a salesperson with the Wesleyan Assurance Society, was absent on sick leave for a month in April/May 1996, and was further absent from September until his dismissal in December.
