Axe costs BT pounds 20k.
An appeal tribunal in Glasgow found the telecoms firm guilty of disability discrimination for not offering Lynn Pelling the option of working from home.
They were told to pay pounds 17,703 plus pounds 2000 for unfair dismissal to Miss Pelling, of Buchanan Street, Johnstone, Renfrewshire.
Tribunal chairman Hugh Murphy said: 'Bearing in mind thousands of their employees work from home, the option of allowing her to work from home was one that ought to have been explored.'
