Da’Bell v National Society for Prevention of Cruelty To Children: EAT 28 Sep 2009

Constructive dismissal
In a claim for constructive unfair dismissal where the last straw doctrine was not relied on, the Employment Tribunal was entitled to hold that the Claimant’s reason for resignation 12 weeks after the relevant breach was not that breach.
The Employment Tribunal did not err when it placed the injury to feelings award in a successful claim for reasonable adjustments under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 in the middle of the middle Vento range. The EAT decided that it is appropriate to update the Vento range in line with inflation to replace andpound;5,000, andpound;15,000 and andpound;25,000 with andpound;6,000, andpound;18,000 and andpound;30,000 respectively.
