EL4U secured compensation for it’s client Steph Whitlock against her former employer The Order of St Johns Care Trust for claims of disability discrimination, failure to make reasonable adjustments and victimisation. The Claimant was disabled as defined by the Equality Act 2010. Ms. Whitlock claimed that the failures of her employer to make reasonable adjustments were that she was not allowed to reduce her hours to do part time work or have more than one rest break per day.
The Respondent did not properly engage in the proceedings (including not turning up on some occasions to Tribunal Hearings) and EL4U was able to secure a costs award against The Order of St Johns Care Trust. Employment Judge Gumbiti-Zimuto said “I am satisfied that the Respondent’s conduct of the proceedings has been unreasonable”.
We are pleased that out Client has been able to obtain proper remedy for the poor way that she was treated by her ex-employer. Ms Whitlock said “In the 15 month period that I have had the pleasure of Mike and Louise’s support and guidance I felt confident in a satisfactory resolution to my disability discrimination case, however I never expected the overwhelming outcome. Thanks to Mike and his guidance to use appropriate resources and representation the results were greater than expected, from a situation whereby the respondent was intermittent in responding, the quick and pain free resolution was down to Mike’s organisation and forward planning.
It has been a difficult process to go through but With Mike and the team on your side it is easier. I Highly recommend Mike and his team”. ………
Thanks Steph glad we could help !
