Gordon Turner Employment Lawyers: A leading firm of employment solicitors

SM v Lauren Richards Ltd.- February 2021


Here an employee brought very broad ranging allegations after she was dismissed. Because she didn’t have 2 years’ continuous employment, her case was brought as a disability related claim for which there is no qualifying period. Instead of getting bogged down in the volumes of data she provided, we applied to have the case dismissed on a narrow point: the medical evidence provided didn’t meet the hurdle for establishing she was a disabled person under the Equality Act 2010.  

This case illustrates how looking carefully at medical evidence early on can cut through a much large case.
