:could possibly be argue Disability harassment
: discrimination arising from a disability
: discriminating unfavourably as a consequence of my father's disability
:actions not appropriateIn regards ***** ***** complaint

See if the court will accept my mitigating circumstances

The incidents took place May 2013
and January 2014My father passed away 7/8/14Tesco's solicitors were advised of this, but even though I it was I bring the complaints to them and my solicitor's letter advised of this they never responded

As your father has passed away there is technically no party to pursue the case. His executor could do so but that is unlikely to be financially viable. The estate would have to fund any litigation and that is unlikely to be a good use of funds. The first incident is almost time barred and the reasons narrated by you would not allow a court to waive that time bar; it is very strict. i could not advise you to proceed with this case via litigation, I'm afraid.

Is there anything I can do in relation to the way Tesco's managers treated my father and I, please?
Expert:  JGM replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately, given that your father has now passed on I do not recommend that you proceed further with this. You will not get legal aid and would have to fund any action yourself. The quantification of the claim would make it uneconomic. At most you can write a complaint to the managing director of the company.
