19 March 2009

Following a decision last year by the House of Lords in a disability discrimination claim to do with housing, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has now said in Child Support Agency v Truman that the narrower comparator favoured by their Lordships applies equally in the employment context.
Although the statutory dismissal regulations are about to be repealed, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has come to a useful decision.
