10 Jan Perceived disability discrimination

The Employment Appeal Tribunal has upheld a claim for direct discrimination based on perceived disability. An employer rejected the Claimant’s job application after perceiving that the applicant had a progressive condition which amounted to a disability under the Equality Act 2010. The Tribunal found that another person, who the employer did not perceive having the progressive condition, would not have been rejected for the job.
