Unfair dismissal – Disability discrimination. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (the EAT) allowed the employer's appeal against the employment tribunal's decision upholding the employee's claims of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination. The EAT held, in respect of the unfair dismissal claim, that there had been no tenable basis for the tribunal's conclusion that the employer's internal appeal hearing had not cured the procedural defects at the dismissal stage. Further, the EAT held that, where the disability discrimination claim had been brought, responded to, and heard, by reference alone to the fact of dismissal, the tribunal had not been entitled to determine the case by reference to the manner or timing of the dismissal.
