Paddington Law Centre was awarded a grant of £10,000 in order to pay for the salary of an Employment Law solicitor at the centre. A client that used this service was Mrs X, a disabled woman with various physical health conditions. After 20 years of service, she was bullied out of her job on account of her health problems and was on long term sick leave. The Centre commenced a claim in the Employment Tribunal and successfully challenged the Respondent’s assertion that she was not disabled at a preliminary hearing. An amicable termination of her employment was finally negotiated, with an agreed favourable reference and substantial settlement payment. This allowed Mrs X the time to recover her health before commencing her new employment.
