Archibald v Fife Council  IRLR 651 HL
Reports relating to this case:
- 6 August 2004
In Archibald v Fife Council, the House of Lords holds that an employment tribunal misconstrued the scope of the employer's duty to take reasonable steps to prevent any of its arrangements from placing a disabled employee at a substantial disadvantage in comparison with people who are not disabled.
- 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).
