Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust v Geoghegan: EAT 29 Jan 2014

EAT Disability Discrimination : Reasonable Adjustments – Sufficiency of reasons
VICTIMISATION DISCRIMINATION – Protected disclosure – Detriment – Sufficiency of reasons
Appeal allowed because (1) the Tribunal’s reasoning on the question of the Respondent’s actual and constructive knowledge of disability was flawed and insufficient; (2) the Tribunal did not give proper and sufficient reasons in respect of its findings that there were breaches of the duty to make reasonable adjustments; (3) the Tribunal did not apply Tarbuck v Sainsbury’s Supermarkets [2006] IRLR 664; (4) the Tribunal did not give proper and sufficient reasons in respect of its findings that the Claimant was subjected to detriment on the grounds of making protected disclosures; (5) certain findings made by the Tribunal were perverse, and these findings materially influenced the Tribunal’s assessment of the Respondent’s witnesses
