Dominique v Global Forwarding Ltd

Employment – Disability. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (the EAT) upheld the rejection by the employment tribunal of the employee's claims for, amongst other things, direct disability discrimination and failure to make reasonable adjustments. However, the EAT decided that in concluding that an adjustment to the scoring of criteria for selection for redundancy would not have avoided dismissal in any event, the reasonable adjustments duty should not have been limited to avoiding dismissal, but should have extended to avoiding detriment flowing from disadvantage, and the hurt feelings that would have resulted. Accordingly, the case would be remitted for reconsideration of that limited point only.
