Woman agrees to compensation settlement over unfair disability discrimination claims

Woman agrees to compensation settlement over unfair disability discrimination claims

A woman who accused her employers of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination has secured a payout under the terms of an out-of-court settlement.

Lynda Vernam was employed by Market Rasen town council as town clerk between mid 2004 and 2008, Market Rasen Today reports.

Days before an employment tribunal was scheduled to begin, the agreement was reached.

The amount of compensation agreed upon has not been disclosed but it could be between £10,000 and £20,000.

In a statement, the council said: "Market Rasen town council wishes to confirm that its former clerk Lynda Verman is no longer associated with the town council.

"A full and final settlement has been agreed by the two parties, the details of which are covered by a confidentiality clause."

Ms Verman declined to comment.

Market Rasen town council is based near the River Rase in the middle of north Lincolnshire.
