Autistic detective bullied out of dream job in Met


MS J FERNANDES

and

THE COMMSSIONER OF POLICE OF THE METROPOLIS

Case No. 2200500/2022




The claimant who also has a long-term health condition, is now taking the force to an employment tribunal for disability, race and sex discrimination.


Her experience is not unique, and neurodivergent police officers can be bullied, ostracised and harassed rather than harnessing their unique ways for the benefit of a force.


The claimant joined the Met as a trainee detective and during her initial posting claims the bullying she received led to constant “high levels of anxiety, depression and stress” and eventually – she believes – helped trigger an autoimmune condition.


The claimant says that managers also refused to provide her with the reasonable adjustments she needed to ease her mental distress, including repeated requests to move to a new borough.


The eventually resigned from the job and is now taking the Metropolitan police to an employment tribunal, with a hearing set for 15 days to run between the 21st of April 2025 to 9 May 2025.
