Baverstock v Secretary of State for Justice

Employment – Unfair dismissal. The employment tribunal (the tribunal) had held that the employee, a disabled prison officer, had been unfairly dismissed by reason of his disability. It also found direct and indirect disability discrimination, disability related discrimination and a failure to make reasonable adjustments. The employee was awarded compensation. The Employment Appeal Tribunal dismissed the employer's appeal against the finding of liability where no error of law had been made out. However, the appeal concerning remedy was allowed and the matter remitted where the tribunal's findings in relation to past and future losses could not be sustained.
