“(…) A charity worker was unfairly dismissed and victimised after reporting colleagues for mocking a physically disabled person, a tribunal has ruled.
Miss C Robinson, who worked as a community outreach worker for Mind Monmouthshire from February 2016 to December 2017, was unfairly dismissed and victimised after she made a public interest disclosure detailing how she had witnessed a co-worker doing an offensive impression of a physically disabled person.
The tribunal also ruled Mind Monmouthshire, a local branch of the national mental health charity Mind, failed to make reasonable adjustments for Robinson after her working environment started to affect her mental health. (…)”.
