Madani Schools Federation v Uddin

Employment – Disability discrimination. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (the EAT) allowed the employer's appeal against the employment tribunal's (the tribunal) decision upholding the employee's claim of disability discrimination, under s 15 Equality Act 2010. The issue before the tribunal had been whether the relevant treatment had been 'because of something arising in consequence of the employee's disability'. The EAT held that the tribunal had erred in failing to follow the proper approach outlined in authority when it decided that causation had been established in respect of five of the employee's complaints. Further, it had erred in failing to analyse the causation issues as they should have.
