Applicant with Asperger’s syndrome wins ‘significant’ tribunal case

By May 5, 2017Uncategorized

Firms may want to rethink their recruitment policies after the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) ruled that a woman with Asperger’s syndrome was discriminated against when she was asked to take a situational judgement test using multiple choice.

The case is thought to mark one of the first times a claim for indirect disability discrimination – where a workplace rule or policy that applies to all employees leaves a disabled person at a disadvantage – has succeeded at EAT level.
