In Fowler v London Borough of Waltham Forest EAT/0116/06, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has reiterated that the duty to make reasonable adjustments for the disabled does not normally include giving full pay to an individual during sickness absence.

The employer had a sickness policy whereby employees were entitled to full pay for the first six months of any absence from work due to ill health.
