Disability discrimination: discounting triggers in an attendance policy was not a reasonable adjustment

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Griffiths v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions [2016] IRLR 216 CA

disability discrimination | duty to make reasonable adjustments | attendance policy

The Court of Appeal has held that the duty to make reasonable adjustments will normally be engaged in a case where a disabled employee has disability-related absences that trigger the application of an attendance policy. However, the Court dismissed the appeal on the ground that on the particular facts of the case, the adjustments sought were not reasonable.
