An employment tribunal case has found against the Royal London Society for the Blind, following complaints of bullying.
The society conceded liability on all the claims brought by former manager Tebiena Martin, who alleged that a climate of fear existed at the charity.
The charity denied that there had been any bullying or harassment, but accepted all six of the claims, including unfair dismissal.
An employment tribunal in Ashford, Kent, heard that Martin worked for the charity for seven years. She claimed that toward the end of that period she and other members of staff were bullied. She is now on incapacity benefit and medication.
The society said it had conceded liability because it did not want to spend any more money on legal costs. The amount of compensation is to be decided.
