Dismissed Employee with Sight Loss Gets Almost £12,000 Compensation

An employee with sight loss who was unable, due to her disability, to perform one part of her job role, i.e. working with onions in a food preparation facility, was dismissed by her employer. A tribunal found that, having reviewed the evidence, it would have involved little or no cost to have excused her from this duty and would have been a reasonable adjustment. She received almost £12,000 in compensation. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-politics-46228215
