Anthony Sakrouge, who represented Steven Law, comments on the Employment Appeal Tribunal decision in Coleman v EBR Attridge Law LLP and Steven Law, the case which established that the Disability Discrimination Act applies not only to discrimination on the grounds of a disability held by an employee, but also to discrimination on the grounds of someone else’s disability (usually referred to as “associative discrimination”).

Anthony Sakrouge instructed Adam Solomon of Littleton Chambers in relation to the above mentioned appeal to the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the proposed appeal to the Court of Appeal before the underlying claim was settled.
