We have an employee who was under performing making errors in typing and filing with less than 12 months service. We suspected dyslexia and she was sent for an assessment. The assessmnet came back as the employee having mild dyslexia and below average intelligence. It suggested a number reasonable adjustments but we felt because of the employees low intelligence that the adjustments wouldnt have an effect. We dismissed the employee without discussing the adjustments with the employee or putting any of them in place. The employee is now saying they will go to an ET. Can we justify not putting in the reasonable adjustments on the grounds of her low intelligence?
