Rider v Leeds City Council - Requirement to move post, even though unenforced, was application of PCP to disabled employee [2012] EAT

Simply informing a disabled employee that they are required to move to a different post, even without actually making that move, can amount to the application of a PCP and thus trigger a duty to make reasonable adjustments.

Ms Rider worked with young children at a nursery, Armley Moor, for Leeds City Council ("LCC"). She had a number of problems with her colleagues at Armley and she made various grievances; following the grievances she was seconded to a different workplace, Red Hall.
