Stagecoach ordered to pay former driver £7,989

Stagecoach Scotland, of Dunkeld Road in Perth, must pay former employee Paul Smith, of Montrose, a total of £7,989 for discrimination and wrongful dismissal.
After a three-day hearing, an employment tribunal in Dundee found by majority that, while Mr Smith had contributed to his own dismissal to a certain extent, he was dismissed unfairly and Stagecoach must pay him £6,989 compensation. The tribunal also found Stagecoach had unlawfully discriminated against Mr Smith on grounds of disability and must pay a further £1,000.
