Former Legoland employee wins compensation claim

A
former employee of Legoland Windsor has won £20,000 compensation after his
employers gave him a model of himself – with a paralysed arm.

Jenkins
– who has a withered arm as a result of a motorcycle crash as a teenager – was
presented with the model at a company awards night. He subsequently fell ill
and was signed off work for nine months.

Jenkins
lost his original discrimination case, but won on appeal after the tribunal
ruled that he had been discriminated against because his figure showed only his
disability and did not depict him with something that involved his job – unlike
figures given to other employees.
