      1 August 2004

      The duty to make a reasonable adjustment under s.6 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 may require an employer to treat a disabled person more favourably than a non-disabled person, in order to remove the disadvantage caused by the disability. This may include transferring an employee to a suitable vacant position, holds the House of Lords in Archibald v Fife Council (1 July 2004).
