Hi all.

Some list members may recall, around 20 months ago, I wrote to this list on several issues relating to my treatment from Argyll and Bute Council, after I had secured a Social Workers post with them. One of the messages concerned a Risk Assessment on me which concluded that as a blind worker, I should not be located on any floor other than the ground. Well, as I said, there were a good few similar issues between the time when I got the job, January 04 and when I was sacked on May 6, without commencing in my post. Well, I took the authority to the Employment Tribunal in Glasgow and the Disability Rights Commission took over the funding after a few months. This afternoon I received a letter from my lawyer advising that my case against the authority was successful. I will have to wait a little while longer before I'm told how much compensation I will receive, but it's just fantastic to have won my case. With a bit of luck, it will be all over the papers up hear so perhaps Local Authorities will finally accept that discrimination of disabled people will simply not be tolerated any longer.

Best wishes.
Andy
