Before starting the job in May 2019 the personal trainer had told managers that her anxiety disorder would be 'triggered' by touching items with 'hygiene issues', The Sun reports.
So...maybe sweaty people aren't the best things to choose to work with?
However bosses ignored the severity of her disorder, instead concluding that Ms Burton was hostile and difficult to work with, the tribunal heard.
Gosh, seems...actually reasonable, doesn't it?
Ms Burton has a condition which causes her to suffer panic attacks and emotional distress when coming into contact with something she considers to have 'cleanliness issues'.
Speaking at an employment tribunal in Croydon, South London, Ms Burton told the judge that she was 'embarrassed at having to explain and justify my condition', The Sun reports.
You should be - you shouldn't be 'justifying' your condition, but seeking to overcome it. Or find another job!
Bosses likened her decision to work at a gym to someone with a milk allergy taking a job as a barista, The Sun reports.
A judge ruled that Ms Burton had suffered unlawful harassment. She is expected to receive compensation of an amount not yet decided.
I'm strugging to suggest something appropriate here, unlike the last barmy decision. Over to you, Reader!
