Legal Submissions in the Cunningham v Irish Prison Service High Court Case

The Cunningham v. Irish Prison Service High Court case looked at whether the Irish Prison Service (IPS) must provide reasonable accommodation under the Employment Equality Acts to prison officers with disabilities.

In its judgment delivered on 9th June 2020 in the Cunningham v. Irish Prison Service (IPS) appeal, the High Court held that the Labour Court was wrong in law to find that the IPS had a blanket exemption in relation to providing reasonable accommodation to its staff under Irish equality law.

The Commission provided legal representation to Mr. Cunningham in this case and made three sets of legal pleadings in this case.

These legal pleadings are available below:
