disability discrimination | duty to make reasonable adjustments | sick pay

In O'Hanlon v Commissioners for HM Revenue & Customs [2007] EWCA Civ 283 CA, the Court of Appeal has held that failing to pay a disabled employee full pay when on sick leave will not normally breach the duty to make reasonable adjustments.

HM Revenue & Customs offers six months' full pay in any period of 12 months to all employees who are absent from work on the grounds of health, followed by six months on half pay, up to a maximum of 12 months in any period of four years.
