      This article looks at recent key disability discrimination judgments, and their implications for employers. Issues considered include discrimination by association, whether or not a failure to consult over reasonable adjustments or to conduct an assessment is, in itself, a breach of the disability discrimination legislation, and the definition of disability.

disability discrimination | duty to make reasonable adjustments

In Hay v Surrey County Council [2007] EWCA Civ 93 CA, the Court of Appeal has agreed with the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) that the tribunal's decision that the employer had failed in its duty to make reasonable adjustments was perverse.

The employment tribunal had found that Ms Hay's disability could have been accommodated by adjustments to her job that it had identified.
