Cregg Labour Solutions Limited T/A Cregg Group v Gerard Cahill Posted In: Case Law
Case ReferenceILCR Determination No. EDA1635
Legal BodyLabour Court (LC)
Type of Claim / JurisdictionSickness and Absence, Discrimination and Equality
This case involved the same claimant as in the Arravasc case but was taken against the Agency, rather than the end user. It concerned a claim that the complainant was discriminated against on the disability ground and was dismissed as a direct consequence.

They further argued that the event of the heart attack was not the reason he was terminated but the fact of his uncertain temporal absence from work
