A shop worker whose boss told her ‘tough’ when she warned him she was about to have a migraine and then suffered an attack which left her paralysed on the floor has won £15,000.
Mary Doran’s manager didn’t believe she suffered from the debilitating headaches and even accused her of lying about her symptoms because he thought she was hungover.
The Nisa boss’s mistrust of his employee led to him telling her ‘tough’ when she asked to go home when she started experiencing the early signs of a migraine attack and could barely see.
Instead he told her to sit down in the stock room until she felt better, but she became so unwell she had to lie on the floor for two hours while her boss ignored her.
She was signed off sick for two weeks but upon her return to work was told there were no shifts for her due to her ‘health issues’ and she was forced to resign.
Ms Doran has now won £15,998.96 after an employment tribunal ruled she was discriminated against by her manager because of her disability.
