Tribunal win for man whose former employer provided discriminatory references

By May 18, 2017Uncategorized

Employers are being urged to take extra care with their references, after a tribunal ruled that a man had been discriminated against after his ex-employer made comments linked to his sickness absence in a reference.

Mr P Mefful claimed he suffered victimisation and disability discrimination after his former employer, Citizens Advice Merton & Lambeth, where he worked from from 2004 until he was made redundant in 2012, gave him a reference that lost him a job offer.
