disability discrimination | duty to make reasonable adjustments | car parking space

In Linsley v Commissioners for HM Revenue and Customs, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that the employer's discretionary car parking policy was a relevant factor to be taken into account in determining the issue of reasonable adjustments, as was the particular disadvantage suffered by the employee, namely the stress of searching for a parking place.
