A woman was harassed and unfairly dismissed on the grounds of her disability, a Cardiff employment appeal tribunal has ruled.
Elizabeth Harris had been a support worker for Neath-based company Prospects for People with Learning Difficulties since 2002.
But the tribunal found that twice in 2010 she was suspended from her workplace without prior consultation for reasons relating to her disability, although the company was aware of it.
Prospects said that both times they had suspended Ms Harris on health and safety grounds, saying risk assessments had identified that Ms Harris may be at risk of injuring herself.
They appealed to the Employment Appeal Tribunal, but the findings were upheld.
