P2CG Ltd v Davis Posted In: Case Law
Legal BodyEmployment Appeals Tribunal (EAT)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionDismissal, Discrimination and Equality
The claimant was given notice in August 2016 of his dismissal due to poor performance. He subsequently brought a claim outlining direct discrimination and harassment on the basis of disability - in relation to the claimant’s diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. The company refuted the claim citing that it had no knowledge that the claimant was in fact, disabled. Instead, they disclosed an email from a client which had outlined an error from the claimant resulting in an overcharge. The claimant’s name was expressly mentioned in the email, but it was later discovered at the Tribunal that the respondent’s director had added this in rather than the client stating this.
