Disability discrimination: Employer that issued warning to employee absent for extended period for disability-related reason did not fail to make reasonable adjustment

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Griffiths v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions EAT/0372/13, the EAT held that an employment tribunal was entitled to find that a disabled employee whose extended sickness absence triggered a warning under the employer's attendance policy did not suffer a substantial disadvantage compared with employees who were not disabled, and that accordingly the employer was under no duty to make reasonable adjustments in the application of its policy.
