This report relates to 1 case(s)

Horler v Chief Constable of South Wales Police ET/1600591/2012

disability discrimination | duty to make reasonable adjustments | discrimination arising from disability

The employment tribunal in this case ordered South Wales Police to pay £230,215 (before tax) for disability discrimination to a police officer who was required to retire because his knee injury meant that he was unable to carry out frontline duties. The tribunal found that the police force had not met its duty to make reasonable adjustments because it had failed to consider alternative posts for him.
