Man suffers Disability Discrimination at roadside service station
08 February 2010
He was unlawfully detained inside a roadside service station and the police were called when he asked if he could instead of chip and PIN use his card in conjunction with a signature. This method of payment remains legal tender and is still commonly used, including as a specific reasonable adjustment for those with disabilities.
Following the incident, our client suffered from depression. The case was successfully resolved in his favour.
