Woman sues over alleged disability discrimination
A former employee at Birmingham City Council is taking legal action against the organisation over claims she was the victim of disability discrimination and unfair dismissal.
Eileen Daley was a manager of the Birmingham Partnership Against Racial Harassment, the Sunday Mercury reports.
Before leaving her role last year, she had been employed by the local authority - which is headquartered in Council House, Victoria Square - for a number of years.
In a statement, the employer commented: "There is a hearing commencing at the Birmingham Employment Tribunal on July 13th 2010. All claims are denied and will be vigorously defended by Birmingham City Council."
It added that it could not say any more because the legal proceedings remain ongoing.
Meanwhile, Ms Daley was not available for comment when contacted by the news source.
Her predecessor, Anthony Tang, also sued the council for discrimination nine years ago and won his case.
