Severely depressed employee sacked because boss thought ‘GPs aren’t experts’

The Metro says an electrician who spiralled into severe depression after his wife and children left him was sacked because his manager believed ‘GPs are not experts’.

Colin Devlin, who works at an aerospace company in Scotland, was hauled into a disciplinary hearing over a violent outburst at work.

But his manager at BAE Systems ‘simply discounted’ his mental health problems as mitigation before firing him, a tribunal heard.

Mr Devlin developed depression after his partner of 12 years left him in February ‘entirely without warning’, taking his two daughters aged 11 and 10 with her.
