The Claimant in the case of Lund -v- St Edmunds School seems to have experienced the same frustration we all do from time to time when IT equipment seems to be conspiring against us and this formed the basis of an ET case in the Ashford Tribunal.
Mr Lund worked in a school from 1991 until his dismissal in October 2010 and was frustrated with the computer equipment provided. It was replaced but he was still not happy. The EAT judgment indicated “there came a time when Mr Lund dismantled the system, and refused to allow the consultant who had been engaged to report on his teaching to observe his class. Shortly after that, Mr Lund did not go in to work for a few days because of stress. On his return to work on 18 June 2010, he was suspended on full pay.” I think we can all feel a degree of sympathy for Mr Lund as there are times when we might all like to dismantle our computer systems.
