Disability discrimination: meaning of "unfavourably" - Swansea University Pension and Assurance Scheme Trustees v Williams [EAT] 21.17.15 (Unreported)
It was perverse to conclude that an employee who took ill-health retirement, and received a pension calculated on his pensionable salary at the date of his retirement, had been treated unfavourably for a reason relating to his disability. The word "unfavourably" could not be equated with the concept of "detriment", and did not require a comparison with an actual or hypothetical comparator.http://www.bailii.org/uk/cases/UKEAT/2015/0415_14_2107.html
