Diana Kloss considers a recent EAT decision on reasonable adjustments to pay.

Previous decisions have held that the reasonable adjustment duty does not in most cases extend to giving disabled employees more sick pay than others. However the Employment Appeal Tribunal in G4S Cash Solutions v Powell has now upheld a tribunal decision that it was reasonable to protect the pay of a worker put on a more junior role because of disability.

Diana’s latest blog Reasonable adjustments – again considers the implications of the G4S case, and how far it may extend to other situations relevant to OH, such as a disabled employee absent undergoing treatment or as part of a phased return to work.
