Employers who have employees with a disability must make reasonable adjustments.
Must an employer make those adjustments for an employee who claims to have a disability (that is not registered) with an illness that is very hard to confirm. An example would be a chronic bad back – for examples sake meaning the person cannot perform any operational duties (in a primarily operational job) and this has been the case for many years. In this case the employee may claim to be on significant pain relief and goes to treatment sessions in paid time (eg: acupuncture – not on sick leave). If this employee then managed to go on a skiing holiday it would raise this question as a more worrying apparent conflict!
If anyone can point me towards any concrete guidance of how to resolve this quandry – I would be most grateful.
