This report relates to 1 case(s)
Gallop v Newport City Council  IRLR 211 CA (0 other reports)
Gallop v Newport City Council  EWCA Civ 1583 CA
disability discrimination | knowledge of disability | occupational health report
The Court of Appeal has held that, while an occupational health report can assist employers in deciding whether or not an employee is disabled, it is up to the employer itself to make the final judgment as to whether or not the employee is covered by disability discrimination legislation. Employers must not simply "rubber stamp" the medical adviser's opinion.
