Clients successful Disability Discrimination Claim

Posted Mar 25, 2014

Karen Sharpe, 44, who has the neurological condition multiple sclerosis (MS), told the Employment tribunal she was forced to give up the job she loved at Boots Opticians in Carlisle because her bosses failed to provide suitable toilet facilities that were near to her first floor workstation and had kept her in the dark about developments.

After a two-day hearing in Carlisle, the panel decided that Mrs Sharpe’s claim to have suffered disability-related discrimination was well founded and said that she was unfairly dismissed.

They awarded her compensation of nearly £14,000.

Mrs Sharpe was represented by Stuart Irving of the firm. He said "On behalf of the firm we are delighted with the outcome for Mrs Sharpe. Her difficult decision to resign from a role she had happily carried out for a number of years, is fully justified.
