Craig v The Management Committee of Assistance Dogs Northern Ireland Posted In: Case Law
Legal BodyNorthern Ireland Industrial Tribunal (NIIT)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionDismissal, Discrimination and Equality
The claimant was employed as a dog trainer with the respondent from April 2018. The role was initially full-time but in early 2019 the claimant outlined that there were concerns with the level of work and that he was going to resign citing health reasons. One of these health reasons was his diagnosis of dyslexia and the level of office work that he was being asked to do. A further aspect of the job that had led to this was the fact that he was having to take foster dogs to his home and care for them, or his wife would be caring for them when he was at work. At this point, the claimant then went to part-time working covering c. 19 hours per week.
