Visram v ICTS (UK) Ltd

Employment – Unfair dismissal. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) dismissed the employer's appeal against the employment tribunal's decision upholding the employee's claims for unfair dismissal and disability discrimination. The EAT held that the employment tribunal had permissibly found that the employee had had an express contractual right to long-term disability benefits and an implied right not to be dismissed, save for good cause, when on long-term sick leave, in circumstances in which he would have lost his entitlement to those benefits.
