In Paul v National Probation Service, the EAT holds that where an employee brings simultaneous claims under s.5(1) and (2) of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, tribunals must consider each claim separately, and must not conflate the perceived impossibility of reasonable adjustments (and consequent failure of the s.5(2) claim) with justification of discrimination under s.5(1).
