Mencap settles dismissal claim

Learning difficulty charity Mencap has agreed an out of court
settlement for an undisclosed sum in a claim for unfair dismissal
brought by an ex-employee.

Kath Jones, a former Mencap senior manager, argued she was
unfairly dismissed because of a disability and that the charity had
not made reasonable arrangements to accommodate her during the
interview process for another role.

A Manchester employment tribunal ruled Jones was fairly
dismissed, although the charity had failed to make reasonable
adjustments for her interview. Jones said she was “satisfied” with
her compensation.
