Phillip won a Disabilaty Discrimination and Unfair Dismissal Claim

Phillips Story

“I suffer from Epilepsy.

I used to work for Solway Foods in Corby. The company had changed my role, and moved me onto the production line, against my concerns and previous company advice that I should not work on a production line due to my disability.

My concerns were ignored.  I had a fall whilst at work but was put back to do the same job.  I was forced to leave, as I could not risk having another injury and not having access to my son.

Solway foods had a duty of care to make reasonable adjustments for its disabled employees but putting me on a production line against professional advice was against the law. NREC helped me win my claim for constructive dismissal and for disability discrimination.   They represented me at the employment tribunal.

I would recommend NREC to anyone who wants help with a discrimination claim.”

NREC helped Phillip win a five figure settlement
