A Dundee social worker has lost her claim of disability discrimination and harassment against the city council.
Marie Riley of Brown Street, Broughty Ferry, took the council to an employment tribunal over matters connected with her post at Ninewells Hospital where she made arrangements for the care of severely disabled children.
In a pre-hearing review, she alleged she had been discriminated against on grounds of her own disability as a sufferer from dyspraxia.
The council challenged her claim in terms of the point at which they knew or could reasonably be expected to know of her disability. Ms Riley began working with the council in 2007 and evidence was heard there were problems with her report writing.
There were complaints about her from service users and she went off with stress. A performance review indicated she had not made any improvements.
She was referred to the occupational health service, and in March 2010 she told management she may be suffering from dyslexia or dyspraxia. Confirmation of her dyspraxia came in January 2012.
Tribunal judge Ian McFatridge struck out her claim of disability discrimination finding it had no reasonable prospect of success. He refused her claims of indirect discrimination and victimisation and said her claim of harassment was time-barred.
