In Cordell v Foreign and Commonwealth Office EAT/0016/11, the EAT held that a deaf employee was not discriminated against when her employer refused to bear the cost of providing "lip-speaking" assistance abroad, which would have cost about £250,000 a year.
The European Court of Justice has held that an employer is not obliged to provide an unsuccessful job applicant with information on the successful candidate, although a failure to do so could lead to an inference of discrimination in a subsequent tribunal claim.
