Bright lights lead to £21,000 payout

An employee who complained lighting in her office triggered her migraine attacks was awarded over £21,000 in damages

Genevieve Bove, of Wrexham, Wales was forced to leave the Association of Voluntary Organisations after requests to change the fluorescent lighting were ignored by bosses. The 48-year-old complained the harsh lights caused her headaches.

A tribunal was told charity chief John Gallanders repeatedly ignored Bove’s plea and held a meeting to discuss her disability discrimination claim in a brightly lit office.
