Limbless Association avoids employment tribunal

Former chief executive settles dispute with charity

A charity chief executive has settled a legal dispute with her former employer shortly before it was due to go to an employment tribunal.

Grania Hyde-Smith filed various claims against the Limbless Association, including unfair dismissal, discrimination or victimisation on the grounds of sex or marriage and failure to provide equal pay.

The case was due to be heard at Croydon employment tribunal in south London at the end of last month but was settled in advance.

"Because the matter concluded by way of amicable alternative resolution, we do not propose making any further comment in relation to this matter," said Zafar Khan, chairman of the association.

Hyde-Smith was the association's information and campaigns officer for three years before she was appointed chief executive in 2006.

The association, which helps people with missing limbs, had an income of £411,000 in the year to March 2008.
