DDA comparison

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Clark v TDG Ltd (trading as Novacold) (25 March 1999) EOR85A, the Court of Appeal has clarified the law as to the comparison to be made so as to determine whether a disabled person has been treated less favourably for a reason which related to his or her disability than others to whom that reason did not apply. In the case of an employee absent from work for a disability-related reason, the correct comparison is with the treatment of employees who are not absent, rather than with an employee absent for the same time for a reason unrelated to disability.
