Direct discrimination claim rejected on grounds of objective justification

Discrimination and Equality, Employment Law

The claimant alleged direct discrimination, harassment and victimisation due to her partner’s disability, under the Equality Act 2010. She challenged the refusal of medical clearance to her partner, who had diabetes, and the subsequent treatment she was subjected to by her employers. Her employers had, in particular, focused on her partner’s weight and the difficulty associated with transporting him should medical emergencies arise.

Claire Darwin was involved in this case.
