STV - August 2016
John Brown, a former commercial associate for the Football Club (FC), was recently awarded £11,000 at a tribunal against the club for disability discrimination. While recovering from a surgery to treat a tumor on his kidney, Brown was informed that his job was "obsolete".
He was told that a new commercial manager would be taking over his duties, but he could still continue working if he accepted a pay cut. In the tribunal, Brown stated "It appears my life-threatening illness has been used as a convenient vehicle to make me redundant or at least change my position to a lesser one within the company with a poorer rate of pay - I therefore believe I have been discriminated against due to my illness and not treated with the equality that I both morally and legally deserve." With this, the judge agreed, and the judge awarded favor to Mr. Brown.
