Disability Rights Commission sued over disability discrimination

The
Disability Rights Commission (DRC) is being sued for alleged disability
discrimination by one of its own workers, reports the Times.

The
newspaper reported that David Sindall,
who is profoundly deaf, is taking DRC chairman
Bert Massie and five other senior staff to an employment tribunal in December.

Sindall alleges that he was
sidelined and demoted from the job he had held for four years which, in turn,
damaged his reputation and harmed his future career prospects.

The
case will be heard by Leeds Employment Tribunal and comes ahead of new
disability discrimination laws that come into effect this Friday.

The
DRC said it would not comment ahead of the tribunal hearing.
