Members Mr L J Boulton, Mrs M P Hughes


Claimant: In person

Respondent: Ms Sky Bibi (RBS Mentor Services)


The unanimous judgment of the Employment Tribunal is set out below.

1. On matters of liability:

1.1 Contrary to section 4(2)(d) of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, the respondent discriminated against the claimant in the form of direct discrimination, victimisation and a failure to comply with its duty to make reasonable adjustments.

1.2 The respondent unfairly (constructively) dismissed the claimant.

2. On matters of remedy, the respondent is ordered to pay the claimant:

2.1 A basic award in the sum of £626.70;

2.2 The sum of £8,000 in respect to injury to feelings, with interest thereon of £398.89, making a total of £8,398.89.

2.3 Compensation for discrimination in the sum of £12,072.88 (representing lost earnings of £11,772.88 and £300 for loss of statutory rights) with interest thereon of £79.05 making a total of £12,151.93.

The total amount that the respondent must pay the claimant is therefore £21,177.52.

3. On other matters:

3.1 The respondent’s application for costs is rejected, save to the extent that the claimant must pay the respondent the sum of £148.61 representing half the reasonable photocopying costs of producing six copies of the trial bundle.

3.2 It is noted that the claimant withdrew her application for costs.

[Omitted – this is about interest rates used to calculate above figures]

Written reasons for the above judgment will follow when prepared.
