Murray v Newham Citizens Advice Bureau Ltd [2003] IRLR 340 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Disability discrimination: Tendency to physical violence resulting from impairment is not an excluded condition

    19 September 2003

    In Murray v Newham Citizens Advice Bureau Ltd, the EAT holds that anemployment tribunal which found that a complainant who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, was disabled for the purposes of the DDA, had a tendency to violence as a direct result of that condition, and who had been treated less favourably on the grounds of that propensity to violence, had erred in further holding that he had not been discriminated against on the grounds of his disability.
