    Scottish and Southern Energy plc v Mackay EATS/0075/06 (0 other reports)

In Scottish and Southern Energy plc v Mackay EATS/0075/06, the EAT held that failure by an employer to consult directly with a disabled employee about the possibility of his taking up less-stressful alternative work rendered the employee's subsequent dismissal unfair, but did not in itself amount to a failure by the employer to make reasonable adjustments.
