The Court of Appeal has upheld the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) ruling that art.5 of the Equal Treatment Framework Directive (2000/78/EC), which covers reasonable accommodation for disabled people in employment, is limited to measures for the assistance of disabled employees, and does not cover adjustments for individuals who have an association with a disabled person.
