F v Cleveland Police Authority - Fresh evidence allowed before EAT  EAT
Fresh evidence was - unusually - admitted before the EAT where it comprised medical records which the Claimant had tried diligently to obtain prior to the hearing but which had not been provided to her due to surgery maladministration.
Miss F was a civilian worker engaged by the police on administrative duties. She was dismissed for misconduct, and brought employment tribunal claims for unfair dismissal and disability discrimination (by way of failure to make reasonable adjustments and victimisation). Cleveland Police disputed that Miss F was a disabled person, and after a 5 day Pre-Hearing Review (PHR) the tribunal agreed with them. All discrimination claims (bar the victimisation claim) were dismissed.
