Dundee United Football Club is set for a tribunal hearing amid claims that a receptionist who worked at the Tannadice Street club was sacked due to her disability.
Melanie McDermott launched a legal bid against the club, citing unfair dismissal, disability discrimination, holiday pay and wrongful dismissal, after she was sacked in May following six years working as a telephonist and receptionist at Tannadice.
Dates have now been set for the tribunal, with Ms McDermott getting her time in court on March 12 to March 15 next year.
Ms McDermott had been absent from work for a lengthy spell due to surgery on a chronic back condition.
It was only after she attempted to return to her duties on a phased return to work that she was told that there were “no hours” for her any more and she was no longer employed by United, according to documents lodged with the employment tribunal office.
The tribunal is set to take place at Caledonian House in Dundee.
