A Medical Secretary v HSE West Posted In: Case Law
Legal BodyEquality Tribunal (EQT)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionDiscrimination and Equality
This case is really interesting on both a human level and a technical level. It is a relatively long decision reflecting the history involved.
The complaint was taken by a medical secretary employed since April 2001, who was diagnosed in 2004 with quite serious medical conditions of diverticular disease and a debilitating bowel condition.

In September 2006 she and her colleague were told that they would have to move to another location and share with two others. The new location was not quite so close to toilets.
