Secretary of State for Work & Pensions v Macklin - The correct questions to be asked about reasonable adjustments in a disability discrimination case  EAT
Miss Macklin is a diabetic and suffered from reactive depression. Her employer DWP accepted she was disabled within the meaning of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. She went on sick leave in September 2001, and was dismissed in April 2004, never having returned to work. Applying the law as it was before October 2004, an employment tribunal found that she had suffered disability discrimination and been unfairly dismissed. DWP appealed.
