In Wells v West Hertfordshire Health Authority (2000) Current Law 2000/2982, it was ruled that, when informed by an employee of a back problem and medical advice that she should avoid demanding physical work, the employer should have carried out a risk assessment of the employee's tasks and in particular the employee's ability to perform them given her medical condition.
