A disabled employee at the Royal Mail’s sorting depot at Wimbledon complained he was unfairly dismissed after 540 indecent and pornographic images were found on his computer over an 11 day period.

Christopher Calver, who has limited mobility, claimed there had been a conspiracy against him because he complained that not enough had been done to help him cope with his disabilities.

London South Employment Tribunal which heard his legal claims a few weeks ago for unfair dismissal and disability discrimination against Royal Mail Group Ltd, said it found that Mr Calver was sent the pornographic images“even if he chose not to read them.”

Mr Calver who suffers from a muscular skeletal condition and migraine had been employed from 1986 to this year when he dismissed for gross misconduct.

Tribunal Judge Martin had decided to make a decision at a later date following the hearing.

Now the judge has announced that Mr Calver’s legal claims have been dismissed.

Mr Calver complained that the Royal Mail did not reimburse him for buying glasses for his computer despite the fact that he had previously received partial payment for glasses from them.

Judge Martin said in a report that the Royal Mail agreed it normally paid for shoes for staff from a catalogue.

Mr Calver needed slip on shoes, however, because he could not bend to tie his shoe laces and there were no slip-on shoes in the catalogue.

The report said Mr Calver further complained that he was prevented from using the canteen because of an inadequate number of chairs and tables.

He had previously used a special chair but it had gone missing.

Mr Calver who wrote to his MP about his situation, further complained about insufficient work following a revision at the depot and said an assistant, who helped him, had been moved.

The Royal Mail opposed Mr Calver’s legal claims, denied his allegations and said some of his complaints had been registered with the tribunal beyond the three month time limit.

They also pointed out that they had had helped Mr Calver and had created an office area specifically for him because of his medical condition.

The judge’s report said that the Royal Mail complained that the 540 pornographic images found on Mr Calver’s computer over an 11 day period, were in the number two category – “sexually explicit genitalia or intercourse that lacked of dignity and respect for people.”
