An Abercrombie & Fitch shop worker with a prosthetic arm has won her case for wrongful dismissal against the retailer.
Riam Dean claimed she was taken off the shop floor of the American retailer’s London flagship store on Savile Row because she did not fit with the company’s “Look Policy”.
A central London tribunal has ruled she was wrongfully dismissed and unlawfully harassed, but did not uphold her claim for disability discrimination.
According to reports, the tribunal awarded Dean £7,800 compensation for injury to her feelings and £1,077.37 for loss of earnings and £136.75 damages for her wrongful dismissal.
Dean is believed to have befriended disabled model Sophie Morgan and the pair have launched Imperfect, a clothing range and campaign group.
