In the latest of our series of posts on Employment Tribunal judgments released, we examine ten Employment Tribunal judgments released in the last week (between 29 January 2018 and 4 February 2018) that our solicitors found interesting:

  1. Miss C Sutton v Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust: 1800471/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been discriminated against and unfairly dismissed when she was dismissed because of the number of days that she had been absent from work (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  2. Mr R Bilson v London Borough of Lambeth: 2302164/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant’s claims of discrimination (relating to a perception of him based upon his religion of Rastafarianism) should be struck out as having no reasonable prospect of success, and that a deposit order be imposed in relation to his remaining claims (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  3. Mrs N Raja v Slough Borough Council: 3323837/2016 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant’s dismissal was unfair (as the Respondent failed to follow the correct procedure) but that it was not discriminatory (as the Claimant failed to show that any adjustments would have made it possible for her to return to work) (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  4. Ms R Soluade v DOCS International UK Ltd: 3323902/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant’s claims of discrimination and harassment failed (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  5. Mr S Davies v Cyprus Fisheries Ltd: 3201070/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been dismissed by the Respondent after he was told “you can finish on Saturday”, and that his dismissal had been unfair (as no procedure had been followed) (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  6. Mr R Porter v Secretary of State for International Trade: 3324662/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been discriminated against by the Respondent (by, among other things, being dismissed) because he sought to take adoption leave (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  7. Mr D Watts v Long Eaton Plant Hire Ltd: 2600235/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been discriminated against by his previous employer after he informed them of the fact that he had been diagnosed with early onset dementia (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  8. Mr PJ Wright v Belle Vue (Manchester) Ltd: 2402997/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been constructively dismissed and subjected to disability-related harassment (“stress/anxiety/depression”)  after the Claimant was referred to as being “unstable” (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  9. Mrs L Hancock v Warrington and Halton Hospital NHS Foundation Trust: 2400182/2017 – the Employment Tribunal held that the Claimant had been subjected to indirect disability discrimination and disability-related harassment (Employment Tribunal judgment)
  10. Mrs Lisa Penrose v Dignity Funerals Ltd: 3200572/2017 – the Employment Tribunal dismissed the Claimant’s claims for constructive dismissal and victimisation, holding that the decision to not pay the Claimant a bonus had had nothing to do with her complaint that she was being discriminated against (Employment Tribunal judgment)
