Lawyer Louisa Young has accused law firm Maurice Blackburn of discriminating against her because of her blindness. The documents lodged with the Federal Circuit Court allegedly show that Young was effectively demoted. Young says she was informed at a meeting in August 2016 that her duties had to be changed due to her disability. Young’s employment at Maurice Blackburn was terminated in December 2016.
