Edwards v Hutchison 3G UK Ltd

Employment – Disability. The employee had succeeded before the employment tribunal in his claim for disability discrimination relating to his medical condition. The Employment Appeal Tribunal, in dismissing the employer's appeal, found no error in law in the tribunal's finding that the employee's severe disfigurement or physical impairment had a substantial adverse effect on the employee's ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities, thereby amounting to a disability for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010.
