Price v Transport For London - Tribunal not bound to alert parties to weight being attached to particular evidence [2011] EAT

Unless substantial prejudice is caused to the party said to be aggrieved, an appeal on the basis that a tribunal did not alert parties to the weight they attributed to each piece of evidence will not succeed.

Mrs Price worked for Transport for London (TfL). She was dyslexic and so was given software to help with part of her job that involved report writing. Her request for training to use it was refused, with TfL expecting her to train herself from a CD. She formally complained about this on 28 January 2009 (probably with the help of her union), but TfL were unmoved. Some 9 months later she was dismissed for absences, and 2 days afterwards she presented a disability discrimination claim, based on a failure to make reasonable adjustments.
