Chief Constable of West Yorkshire v Farrand

Employment – Disability. The employer police force appealed against a finding of the employment tribunal that the disabled police officer's transfer to a role which she never taken up prior to medical retirement had amounted to a breach of s 21 of the Equality Act 2010. The Employment Appeal Tribunal allowed the employer's appeal, deciding that the tribunal's decision on that point could not stand, as the correct question had been whether the transfer role would have represented a reasonable adjustment.
