Agency Workers have discrimination rights under the AWR

In September 2012 an Employment Tribunal found that an agency worker had discrimination rights and awarded her a large sum of money for disability discrimination and unfair dismissal against the Company she was employed to work at. We look at the details of the case here.

In Pegg v Camden Council, the Tribunal heard that Ms Pegg had been dismissed after 44 weeks service at the Council after absences caused by depression.

The case was sent to the Employment Appeal Tribunal to answer the legal question of whether equality laws protects agency workers from being discriminated against by the organisation they are supplied to. In early 2013 the Judge of the Appeal Tribunal said that as Ms Pegg was under an obligation to work for Camden Council, the Council was under a legal duty not to discriminate against her.
