Sacked for going blind!

A horrendous case from the Daily Mirror - Hayley Tudor v Spen Corner Vets Surgery. The first horror was that MsTudor had a stroke after a bungee jump, which then led to her becoming blind. Her employer didn't comply with its duty to make reasonable adjustments and gave her her P45 instead. The Manchester Tribunal awarded £20,000 which is a high award in the context of a gross annual salary of £9000. The case was supported by the Disability Rights Commission who printed this press release.
