Reports relating to this case:

  • Disability discrimination: Refusal of phased return to work not discriminatory

    15 July 2005

    In Home Office v Collins, the Court of Appeal holds an employer did not fail to make reasonable adjustments when it dismissed a disabled employee, who had been absent from work because of sickness for prolonged periods during her probationary period, without pursuing the possibility of the employee returning to work on a "phased basis", starting with working part time.
